About the winery
For almost four centuries, the Trimbach Family has been promoting Alsace and its History, its exceptional terroirs and fine wines. Maison Trimbach is still located in Ribeauvillé and still owned by the two grandsons of Frédéric Théodore, Bernard and Hubert, since their father's untimely death in 1945.
Pierre and Jean, Bernard's sons, the 12th generation, have joined the Firm in 1979 for Pierre and 1985 for Jean to work on the vinification for the first one and on the promotion of the wines for the second one. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the Family Business.
The Family personaly looks after each operation, from planting to harvests and from vinification to bottling. Maison Trimbach's vineyards are all situated around Ribeauvillé, where the soils are dominant in limestone (Ribeauvillé, Hunawihr, Bergheim, Rorschwihr, Riquewihr and Mittelwihr).
They benefit from the alsatian microclimate, thanks to the Vosges Mountains protection, which preserves the plain from the rain. The Trimbachs have always had a purist vision. For 12 generations, the Family has been producing dry wines, very strictly structured, long-living and fruity, elegant and balanced: it's the Trimbach Style !
The Trimbachs let their wines age in the bottles in the cellar during several years before they release them on the market, especially for the Great Wines, such as Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile. Riesling « Cuvée Frédéric Emile » is the Signature wine of the Family. It's a dry and mineral Riesling, which remains true to the House's Philosophy. Coming from Grands Crus Geisberg and Osterberg, two clay-limestone soils, Riesling Frédéric Emile has a great ageing potential.
