Vintage Wine collected from the vineyard "Turckheim". The vine is grown in areas with a very dry climate, which is characterized by a small amount of annual rainfall. This, no doubt, has a great impact on soil characteristics and features of ripening and drying berries. Favorable exposure allows planting the vine to get the maximum amount of sunlight, especially in the evening, due to the late sunset. Soil, which is a vineyard, mainly clay and sand, interspersed with gravel.
Company Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was created in 1959, when Leonardo Umbreht Zind and Genevieve married and joined the family property. Leonardo, whose family was engaged in viticulture in 1620, did a lot for the development of the wine sector, moving it to the top ten wineries in Alsace, and will forever remain a place of honor in the history of this domain.
Olivier Umbreht - Leonardo son, became the first Frenchman, who qualified as "Master of Wine". He is worthy of taking over the reins from his father. Today, Leonardo, Genevieve, Olivier and Margaret Umbreht jointly managed the estate with a total area of 40 hectares, spread out on the territory of 5 different villages.
Average yield vineyards in the Domain Zind-Umbreh - 35 hl / ha, which is two times less than traditional indicators of class vineyards Grand Cru. Leonard has always been a supporter of the low yields. His commitment to the best terroirs of Alsace led him to purchase unusual sites "Rangen" and "Clos Windsbuhl", from the acquisition of which other manufacturers refused because of inability to use mechanized equipment there. This problem Leonard quickly decided using earthworks horses. In this act and expressed Umbreht family management style - an unusual approach, precision, foresight, unconditional respect and love for the quality of their work.
