  • Rangen de Thann is the most spectacular and certainly the most noble domaine in all of Alsace. Lying to the south of the region, it has enjoyed an excellent winegrowing reputation since the 12th Century. With its gently sloping position which sits at 350-400 m altitude, the volcanic vineyard is unique for Alsace; the dark reddy-brown soil and south-facing aspect produce a characterful Riesling, with a crystalline texture and unforgettable depth. It can cellar for a good 20 years.

    Zind Humbrecht was created in 1959 as a result of the merger of the wine producing operations of the Humbrecht family in Gueberschwihr and the Zind family in Wintzenheim. The Humbrechts are a very old wine-making family, who have been passing their skills from one generation to the next since the Thirty Years War (1620). The property has 40 hectares and is managed according to biodynamic principles. Zind Humbrecht has long been established as one of Alsace's most reputable producers. Léonard Humbrecht has placed quality over quantity, developing superb terroirs that have been neglected because they are too difficult to work, such as Rangen in Thann. Today, Olivier Humbrecht and his father are only interested in exceptional terroirs; their insistence on quality, combined with virtuoso technical ability, enable them to produce exceptionally dense, complex wines that are always respectful of the characteristics of the grape varieties and the terroir.
