“Domaine G Humbrecht et Fils Vins Fins d’Alsace” (as they call themsleves) is a small, family owned and family run wine estate in the pretty village of Pfaffenheim. The winery is in the centre of the village, but it is still just a short walk to get out to the vineyards. The family traces its history among the Alsace wines back to the 17th century. The current generation is headed by Pierre-Paul whose son is taking a more and more active part in the winemaking and development of the winery.
The vineyards on the hill above the village are planted with a variety of grapes: sylvaner, pinot blanc, riesling, muscat, pinot noir, tokay pinot gris (which today has dropped the tokay prefix), and gewurztraminer. The also make a grape variety blend – the famous edelzwicker. G Humbrecht has a small parcel on the Grand Cru Steinert.
The farming of the vineyards is biodynamic, which is a sort of extension of organic farming, based on specific treatments of the soil and the vines. Vinification is done in the winery in the village. It is equipped with both modern stainless steel tanks and vats as well as old wooden foudres (wooden vats). They also have the tools that are needed to make the biodynamic preparations, e.g. a dynamisateur (dynamiser?).
