The family estate is located on the gently sloping slopes of Eguisheim and Gueberschwihr, a few kilometres south of Colmar, whose soils are predominantly clay and limestone. They practice an uncertified organic cultivation on the vineyard.
This is the story of a field that has undergone many changes... Philippe Zinck was just 22 years old when he took over the estate in 1997. He finished his wine studies and returned from Australia, enriched by a 6-month experience at Leeuwin Estate, Margaret River.
Created by his father in 1964, the estate then covers an area of 8 hectares in the commune of Eguisheim. He undertook the extension of the estate, reviewed the wine ranges and launched the production of Grands Crus and Crémants. Pascale joined him in 2007. Together they manage the estate, guide it towards an organic farming practice and assert their personalities in the wines.
To be a winegrower is above all to live one's terroir. Growing vines and producing a great wine are two activities that are both exciting and complementary. Very attached to our terroir, we do everything possible to ensure that its richness and uniqueness are expressed in the wines. To do this, we pamper each vine stock and our grapes are picked by hand. As great wines are produced in the vines, we pay particular attention to the work of winemaking and life in the soil. Once the grapes have been pressed, our interventions in the cellar are limited to the strict minimum.
Being a winegrower also means living in harmony with nature and accepting to question yourself every season that passes.... That is what we do with great humility.
