Family-owned estate, Domaine Zinck was established by Paul Zinck in 1964; he started with two hectares of vines. It was then handed over to his son, Philippe who now farm 20 hectares organically since 2011, and started biodynamic practices since January 2018. Certification Ecocert and Demeter is expected in two years. All grapes are hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and purity.
Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
