- Other info: From a family that has worked the earth and vines at Eguisheim for several generations, Paul Zinck created the Zinck Winery in 1964. He started with 2.5 hectares of vines and by the mid-70s the winery covered 6 hectares. Driven by the same passion as his father, Philippe jointed the winery in 1997 and took over the estate of 8 hectares. Whilst respectful of the values of a family-owned business, he managed to create a subtle balance between traditional small-scale methods and new wine-growing and winemaking techniques. His passion for the vines and the earth, combined with his entrepreneurial skills, have brought the winery recognition and, even more, have produced wines with a style unique to the Alsatian countryside. Today, the winery is headed by Philippe and his wife Pascale who joined him in 2007 and covers 30 hectares.
