The origins of Maison Trimbach date back to 1626 when Jean Trimbach established the family wine trade in the village of Riquewihr. The Trimbach Family also had a long political history with ancestors Jean-Jacques Trimbach, his son Jean, and two centuries later Jean-Frédéric Trimbach holding the position of Mayor in the towns of Riquewihr and Hunawihr. In fact 1811 Jean-Frédéric took an important position as what used to be called the wine “gourmetage” in Hunawihr which was well known for its excellent wines, especially Riesling. He moved the operations of the Trimbach Winery to Hunawihr which was later transferred to its current location in Ribeauvillé soon after World War I by his grandson Frédéric Théodore. Today, Maison Trimbach is run by the 12th and 13th generations of the Trimbach family and is recognized as one of the most respected producers of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris in Alsace according to our Trimbach reviews. Trimbach’s Clos Sainte Hune has been an exclusive property of the family for more than 200 years and is typically their highest regarded Riesling according to our Trimbach ratings.
