Hengst Vineyard

Of great historic significance, this Grand Cru belonging to Domaine Zind-Humbrecht is first mentioned in the 9th century. Located in the commune of Wintzenheim, it lies on a steep slope at an altitude of 885 to 1215 Feet. This southeast facing vineyard benefits from a dry, warm microclimate with minimal rainfall limited to roughly 640 mm per year. The soil structure is comprised of Oligocene conglomerates, marl and limestone. Zind-Humbrecht crafts exclusively Gewurztraminer from this vineyard.
