Since 1626, the Trimbach family have been a reference point for fine Alsace wine. They are also one of the largest owners of Grand Cru vineyards in the region which account for an impressive third of their total production. At every level, their wines embody the celebrated Trimbach style: structured, long-lived, fruit-driven, dry, elegant, and above all balanced. Family is also central to everyday life at Trimbach. Winemaking is expertly managed by 12th-generation Pierre, alongside his nephew Julien.  Pierre’s brother, Jean, and Pierre’s daughter Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, are global brand ambassadors. In 2023, Trimbach was certified HVE-3 Organic reflecting their dedication to creating the highest-caliber expressions of their terroir.


The grapes come from Trimbach’s vines and those of their partner winegrowers. They are located on hillside terroirs on the sub-Vosges hills. The soils date from the Triassic period, on Muschelkalk: shell limestone, dolomite and marl, and from the Jurassic period with limestone and marls, with south/southeast exposure. 2019 had cold temperatures in spring which slowed down the growth of the vines. June followed with dry and very hot weather. Some beneficial rains in August provided relief for the vines. Exceptional hot and dry harvest conditions allowed for perfect maturity, superb balance in between sugar and acidity heralding great wines!

Winemaking & Aging

Grapes are selected at maturity then crushed and delicately pressed in a pneumatic press. The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. There is no secondary malolactic fermentation, or long aging on lees, in order to maintain as much natural acidity as possible, and preserve freshness, liveliness, and fruity aromas. Bottled in spring, then two years of aging minimum in the cellar.

Tasting Notes

The aromatic expression of this grape variety dominates, the very definition of the gewurztraminer from Alsace, well-anchored in the dry and balanced-style of the Trimbach family. Its very elegant bouquet, its crunchiness and its notes of roses, lychee, and citrus fruit lead to a lively and fresh finish.
