Kobrand Corporation Named Exclusive U.S. Importer for Legendary Estate From Alsace, France: Domaine Zind-Humbrecht

PURCHASE, NY--(Marketwired - February 11, 2014) - Kobrand Corporation, a leading wine and spirits importer with a distinguished portfolio of hand-selected brands from around the world, is proud to announce the addition of the renowned Domaine Zind-Humbrecht to its French wine portfolio. Effective February 1st, 2014, Kobrand is the exclusive U.S. Importer for all wines from the Zind-Humbrecht portfolio and is responsible for all sales and marketing activities in the United States.

The Humbrechts are a family of winegrowers in Alsace since 1620. The winery came by its current name in 1959 when Leonard Humbrecht married Genevieve Zind. In the 1960s and 1970s, Leonard was able to expand the winery's collection of Grands Crus and other high quality vineyards. Since then, one of the hallmarks of every Zind-Humbrecht wine has been its overriding sense of terroir: the taste of the vineyard is always clear and unmistakable.

Leonard's son Olivier Humbrecht, is the General Manager of the Domaine and the only Alsatian winemaker to attain M.W. (Master of Wine) status. A passionate advocate for the wines of Alsace and a firm believer that great wines are the reflection of a place, Olivier has long been convinced of the benefits of Biodynamic farming. He has developed a regime based on Rudolf Steiner's teachings that includes low impact farming, organic composting, restricted yields, hand-tending of the vines, and native yeasts. It is this constant attention to detail that has made Zind-Humbrecht the archetype of its region and one of the world's greatest wine producing estates.

"The wines from Domaine Zind-Humbrecht are perfect additions to our portfolio of outstanding producers from around the world and in particular France, complementing the world class wines of Maison Louis Jadot and Champagne Taittinger," said Robert T. DeRoose, President and CEO of Kobrand Corporation. "Since 1944, our company has brought to the American market some of the world's highest quality, most sought-after wines. We are very excited about this new partnership to help Domaine Zind-Humbrecht to reach its full potential in the U.S."

Zind-Humbrecht wines will be available nationwide.
