Mandelberg (Grand Cru Elsass)

One of the Alsace (Haut-Rhin) sites classified as Grand Cru within the Alsace Grand Cru appellation. The name derives from the almond trees next to it.

They are mainly planted with Gewürztraminer (40%) and Riesling (30%), the rest with Pinot Gris and Muscat Blanc. Well known producers are Baumann-Zirgel, Domaine Bott-Geyl, Burghart-Spettel, Frédéric Mallo, Jean-Paul Mauler, CV Ribeauvillé, Edgard Schaller, Philippe Scheidegger-Zimmerlin and Willy Wurtz et Fils.
