Domaine Zind-Humbrecht - Alsatian winery, founded in 1959, when Leonard Umbreht married Genevieve Zind and family vineyards on both sides united. In 1960-1970-ies Leonard Umbreht bought grape areas of the region, including abandoned while vineyard Rangen de Thann.
Son Leonard - Olivier started to work at the end of the 1980s, continuing a thorough study of the vineyards Zind-Humbrecht. Olivier was the first Frenchman won the prestigious title of "Master of Wine" and the only winemaker that rank in Alsace. Olivier Umbreht 6 times voted the best winemaker in the production of white wines at the international competition "International Wine Challenge". He introduced the biodynamic method, thinking that the only way you have to move forward. Yields its vineyards by a third below the average in Alsace, and are used only for wine perfectly ripened berries. Olivier production methods based on non-intervention in natural processes. Grapes are pressed within 48 hours, fermentation can take up to 14 months, then the wines are aged on the lees up to 10 months without adding sulfur. Umbreht allows wines undergo malolactic fermentation, although it is usually in the region, this practice is not used. Wines are often bottled with residual sugar without filtration and fining. Olivier believes that you can not afford not to intervene, but only if the crop of impeccable quality, otherwise the results will be catastrophic.
