Domaine Hurst dates from 1926 but the family’s vinous roots go back to the 17th century, now run by thirteenth generation Armand Hurst and his wife Nicole. With financial investment from Marc Rinaldi, Colmar industrialist, serial entrepreneur and long-time benefactor of the Alsace vignoble, the estate has been transformed. Marc brought in a new team led by Samuel Tottoli, a sommelier turned winemaker who had previously spent more than a dozen years reinvigorating the famous Alsace house of Kuentz-Bas. The transformation here has been swift and dramatic with notable gains in concentration, texture and vitality, all of them shaped by the peculiar geology of their large holding in the Grand Cru of Brand’s granitic soils. A new biodynamic regime saw the entirety of the domaine certified by Demeter in 2019.

Their lovely Riesling Vieilles Vignes comes from 30-50 vines planted ongranite soils on the slopes above the town of Turkheim near to the famous Grand Cru of Brand. The grapes are gently crushed and fermented in old, some over 100 year old, oak foudres with their natural yeasts and aged on its lees.

Drinking beautifully with real depth and length.
