The Kamm estate is made up of 6.5 ha situated in the centre of the fortified city of Dambach-la-Ville. This area, on the eastern slopes of the Vosges mountains, is renowned for its terroir and produces wines that benefit from the granite soil in which they are grown.
Eric Kamm took over the family winery in 2005 and immediately began to make big changes. As well as converting the vineyard to organic farming, Eric also began to develop wines which deviated significantly from those of his father, Jean-Louis. The vineyards lie 500 metres above sea level – different parcels of volcanic granite that are planted with Pinot Gris, Riesling, Auxerrois, Muscat, Gewürztraminer and a large quantity of Pinot Noir. Eric seeks to let the terroir speak for itself and works with small yields in order to achieve this, using the natural yeasts present on the grape skins to kickstart fermentation.
