The Zind-Humbrecht estate in Turckheim is today considered one of the most lively places of the great Alsatian viticulture.
Since the founding work of Léonard and Geneviève Humbrecht (relayed today by their son Olivier and his wife Margaret), started in the fifties, the wines of the domain have gained an international reputation. Today, they are all the fruits of biodynamic viticulture.
If these wines are admired for their extraordinary aromatic richness and for their fidelity to the terroirs that saw them grow, they are also the testimony of an ecological approach to viticulture likely to radically transform our understanding of the vine.
This richly illustrated book presents an astonishing adventure of the vineyard. An adventure that often intersects with that of Alsace, but also with all the questions about the identity that wine and its agronomy possess in an era that, contradictorily, praises or criticizes them without always really knowing them.
Thierry Weber, a faithful pen of Éditions Tonnerre de l'Est, he teaches philosophy and writes essays on wine.
