About The Winery

The Humbrecht family has been making wine since 1620 in the Alsace region. Olivier Humbrecht MW and wife Margaret took over the reins from Léonard and Geneviève Humbrecht in 1989. A new cellar was completed in the heart of the Herrenweg vineyards in Turckheim in 1992. During this period chaptilisation and fining were replaced by longer pressing cycles and elevage on lees for a minimum of 8 months, and longer, slower fermentations were introduced.

Domaine Zind Humbrecht comprises of 40 hectares of vines, spread out over an array of different terroirs in the Alsace wine region. Created in 1959, Domaine Zind Humbrecht owns vines in the Grand Cru areas of Rangen de Thann (5.5ha), Goldert in Gueberschwihr (0.9ha), Hengst in Wintzenheim (1.4ha) and Brand in Turckheim (2.4ha); as well as the terroirs of Rotenberg (1.8ha) and Clos Häuserer (1.2ha) in Wintzenheim; Herrenweg (11.5ha), Clos Jebsal (1.3ha) and Heimbourg (4ha) in Turckheim and the Clos Windsbuhl (5.15ha) in Hunawihr.

For the domaine the expression of terroir, conveyed through grape varieties of Alsace, has been reinforced by cultivating the vines organically (formally since 1998) and according to biodynamic principles since 2002.

The viticultural focus is to produce ripe, balanced and concentrated grapes which enable the elimination of any vinification techniques that would modify the initial harmony of each terroir. Fermentations are very slow, and the wines spend a minimum of 6 months on the total lees. The wines are bottled between 12 and 24 months after the harvest. The yield is greatly vintage dependent, and averages around 35hl/ha with an annual production of between 12,000 and 16,000 cases.
