Biodynamic – historic – family owned – world-renowned
These wines come from the lands of two families steeped in winemaking history, formed in 1959 when neighbours Zénon Humbrecht and Emile Zind decided to work in tandem, combining their vineyards to leave a total of 40 hectares.
Before they joined together, each of the families had been producing wine since 1620. Therefore, you would be hard pushed to find an estate more intrinsically linked with Alsacien history and terroirs.
And rather than rest on their laurels, they continue to develop their story. Since gaining biodynamic status in 2002, the Zind-Humbrecht estate has become recognised as one of the most iconic biodynamic wineries in the world.
Like many of the producers we choose to work with, the estate is still completely controlled by the family, headed by Olivier Humbrecht – known all over the wine world for his staunch beliefs in the implementation of biodynamic principles.
Smoky and stone fruit aromas on the nose, round and textured palate balanced by refreshing vivacity with light spice and honey characters on the finish.
