Maison Trimbach, established in 1626, holds a rich history as one of the oldest wineries in the Alsace wine region, France. Situated in the picturesque town of Ribeauville, surrounded by the Vosges Mountains, their vineyards benefit from limestone- and fossil-rich soils. The family-owned estate has been passed down through generations, and its success was propelled by Frédéric Emile Trimbach’s wines’ recognition at the 1898 International Wine Fair in Brussels.
Trimbach is renowned for its exceptional Riesling wines, particularly those from the Clos Sainte Hune vineyard, recognized as one of the finest expressions of the grape in Alsace. In addition to Riesling, their wine portfolio includes classic Alsace varieties like Sylvaner, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Muscat, and Pinot Noir. Specializing in dry, age-worthy wines with remarkable minerality, the house also produces Vendages Tardives, Selection de Grains Nobles wines, and Eaux-de-Vie in select vintages.
The most significant plot in their vineyards is the walled Clos Sainte Hune, situated within the Rosacker Grand Cru vineyard of Hunawihr. Despite its grand cru status, Trimbach opts to label the wine under the prestigious Clos Sainte Hune name, reflecting their dedication to quality and tradition. Today, the 12th and 13th generations of the Trimbach family, including Hubert Trimbach, his daughter Anne, and nephews Jean and Pierre, continue to uphold the family’s legacy and produce exceptional wines that exemplify the best of Alsace.
