Since 1620, the Humbrecht vineyards in Alsace have been passed down through successive generations of the family. Originally they worked their plots by horse, made wine, then sold it in cask, but in 1947 new technology and a decrease in bulk wine prices inspired Emile Humbrecht to begin bottling his own production. In 1959, when Leonard Humbrecht married Genevieve Zind, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was born. Because many growers had abandoned Alsace's hillside vineyards for flatter sites during the 1960's and '70's, land prices dropped. Wisely, Leonard Humbrecht began to buy these hillside sites, and by 1983 the domaine had grown to 60 acres. Today Domaine Zind-Humbrecht consists of 100 acres, overseen by Leonard's son Oliver. This Gewurtztraminer is powerful and broad, offering the wide spectrum of unique and full-throttle flavors one typical expects from this maverick grape. Dry, but not austerely so, this is just the wine to have with cheeses when you want something special for dinner but you can't be bothered to cook!
