Details of wine

If you are looking for one of the best Cru d'Alsace this is definitely the Clois Saint Urban, from which an extraordinary Gewurztraminer is produced. Produced under organic certification this vintage is particularly pleasant due to the late ripening which enhances its intensity. The fruity scents of apricot and peach combined with the softness and freshness of the taste make it a wine for the whole meal. Sea bass and amberjack are worthy combinations.

The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht has been created in 1959 by the union of the family owned properties of Zénon Humbrecht, winegrower at Gueberschwihr and of Emile Zind, winegrower in Wintzenheim. Before this date each of our families were producing and selling their wines under their own name. Winegrower from father to son since the Thirty Years war in Europe (1620) the Humbrecht family has long winemaking traditions. Today Léonard and Ginette, as well, as Olivier and Margaret Humbrecht are working together at the Domaine. Chanoine Barth, historian of Alsace wines, recalls that the Humbrecht family was already renting vineyards from the Abbaye of Marbach, near Gueberschwihr, in the 18th century. However, we only started to bottle our wines in 1947. Since then, we have only produced grapes from our own vineyards, making the wine and selling it under our own label. Today the Domaine Zind-Humbrecht has 40 hectares of vineyards located in five different villages in the Haut- Rhin.
