    In 9th century, a donation to the Abbey of Murbach mentions this vineyard for the first time. Lazare de Schwendi, seigneur of Haut-Landsbourg, and the bailiff of Kaysersberg shared feudal rights until the French Revolution.
    The great reputation of this site encouraged numerous noblemen, burghers of Colmar, and the Abbeys, to establish large estates here.
    Typical characteristics :
    In its youth, the wine is quite in accordance with its name, it has an untamed character (Hengst means stallion). Bottle-ageing softens, refines and tames it. This "thoroughbred horse" astonishes gourmets and connoisseurs by its ageing potential (10 to 20 years, or more).
