Taste Like a Master with “the Finest Winemaker in the World” – Olivier Humbrecht, M.W. and the Stunning Wines of the Historic 1620 Estate – Domaine Zind-Humbrecht!

"I don't know what is more mind-boggling, the quality of Domaine Zind-Humbrecht's wines or Olivier Humbrecht's complete dedication to quality. This tall, powerful, and intellectual man may well be the finest winemaker in the world." – Robert Parker

Join us Saturday, May 20th for a once in a lifetime tasting with Olivier Humbrecht, M.W. of Domaine Zind-Humbrecht.  This historic 1620 domaine is world-renowned for their terroir-driven whites from the noble riesling, pinot blanc, gewurztraminer, pinot gris and muscat varieties. Olivier Humbrecht is the 20th generation winemaker and owner of this pioneering Alsatian estate that stands alone in its relentless dedication to capturing the taste of each of its distinguished vineyards.  The wines of Zind-Humbrecht are recognized by sommeliers, critics, and connoisseurs, alike, for their sense of place, purity of fruit, and their clear and unmistakable terroir!

Olivier Humbrecht is not only the head of his family’s historic estate, an unbroken lineage that extends back to 1620, but is also the second winemaker in the world to attain a Master of Wine status.  A passionate advocate for the wines of Alsace and a firm believer that great wines are the reflection of a place, Olivier Humbrecht, M.W., General Manager and Owner, has long been convinced of the benefits of biodynamic and organic farming. He has developed a regime that includes low impact farming, organic composting, restricted yields, hand-tending of the vines, and native yeasts. It is this constant attention to detail that has made Zind-Humbrecht the archetype of its region and one of the world’s greatest wine producing estate!

This is a tasting you will NOT want to miss! We will be featuring seven wines that perfectly reflect the noble varieties and terroir Zind-Humbrecht has made famous, including the 96-point Grand Cru Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann SGN 2009.  When will you have a chance to taste with a Master of Wine and his stunning terroir-driven wines again?!!! We truly have a special tasting organized, so mark your calendars and be sure to join us on Saturday, May 20th from 12- 4pm in Scarsdale! We look for to seeing you there!
