ZIND HUMBRECHT

The expression of terroir, conveyed through grape varieties of Alsace, is reinforced by cultivating the vines organically and according to biodynamic principles. Great lengths are gone to each growing season to produce the best quality grapes from each vineyard. As respect for the vine and soil life is imperative, the viticultural tasks are carried out by a team of 22 dedicated staff members. The high ratio of vineyard worker to vineyard surface enables an attention to detail and the execution of many of the viticultural tasks manually. In addition, animal traction and the use of their own compost help to reduce the impact of mechanical compaction on the soils.

Ripe, balanced and concentrated grapes enables 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.

HERRENWEG DE TURCKHEIM

All varieties are planted on the Herrenweg. They share the same characteristic of being very aromatic, advanced in their development and are always defined by a very ripe acidity and opulent fruit. The wines from Herrenweg are accessible and generous in their youth and although they are often best enjoyed at this stage can surprise 10 or even 20 years later.

The early ripening character of this terroir and its good draining capacity are advantageous in wet and late vintages. However in hot and dry vintages, the vineyards in these terroirs can suffer drought stress. For this reason only vineyards where the average vine age is greater than 30 years are used for the Herrenweg Vielles Vignes. Lower yields and deeper established root systems combine to yield wines with greater minerality and structure.
