Domaine Zind-Humbrecht

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Turckheim, France

Zind-Humbrecht is a prestigious winery with a rich history dating back to 1620, where the Humbrecht family has passed down the art of winegrowing from generation to generation in the beautiful terroirs of Alsace. Established officially as Domaine Zind Humbrecht in 1959, the estate is now under the capable leadership of Olivier and Margaret Humbrecht, who took over from Léonard and Geneviève Humbrecht in 1989. Their dedication to preserving the expression of terroir through Alsace grape varieties is evident, and they employ organic and biodynamic practices to cultivate their vines, ensuring ripe, balanced, and concentrated grapes that naturally reflect the unique characteristics of each terroir.

The winemaking process at Domaine Zind Humbrecht is meticulously handled to maintain the harmony of their terroirs. Slow fermentations and extended aging on the lees for a minimum of 6 months result in wines of exceptional depth and complexity. They bottle the wines between 12 to 24 months after harvest, allowing them to reach their full potential. The estate’s emphasis on respecting the vine and soil life is underscored by a team of 22 dedicated staff members who carry out most viticultural tasks manually. The use of animal traction and their compost further reduces the impact of mechanical compaction on the soils. With an average yield of around 35hl/ha and an annual production of 12,000 to 16,000 cases, the winery ensures a balance between quantity and quality.

Domaine Zind Humbrecht is renowned for its pioneering approach to vineyard work and winemaking. They were early adopters of high planting densities in the 1970s and embraced biodynamics in 1997. In the cellar, Leonard Humbrecht introduced innovative techniques like a cooling system for oak casks and whole grape pressing. Their unwavering commitment to progress and respect for the terroir results in wines that truly embody the essence of their land. Located in the heart of the Herrenweg vineyard since 1992, Domaine Zind Humbrecht stands as a shining example of tradition, innovation, and a profound passion for the art of winemaking.
