  • Winemaker Notes Just a few kilometers southwest of Colmar, the Zinck winery is located in Eguisheim, one of the loveliest villages in Alsace. Sheltered by the Vosges Mountains, the climate is semi-continental, quite sunny, temperate and dry. The winery is now run by Phillipe and Pascale Zinck. The vineyards cover over 20 hectares and produce wines with labels guaranteeing the origin of the wine, AOC. These include AOC Alsace, AOC Grand Cru, AOC Crémant of Alsace, and special mentions for the late harvest and grains nobles.
  • Tasting Notes Serve this delicious Gewurztraminer as an aperitif, or pair it with spicy and exotic cuisine like Asian, Creole, and Latin American cuisine. Also pairs well with characterful cheeses like Roquefort and Munster, and various desserts such as pies, cakes, and fruit salad.
