The grapes are selected by Pierre and Jean Trimbach from the Trimbachs own vineyards and from growers with whom the family has long term relationships, and usually picked during the first week of October. The Pinot Gris is vinified to complete dryness and is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. The wine is not oak-aged, as the Trimbachs believe that wood adds nothing to their wines, the salient characteristics of which are extreme purity and concentrated fruit.
Bright, pale gold with aromas of juicy peaches and ripe pear. Full-bodied with ripe smokey tropical fruit flavors and a long nutty finish.

Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvill?, where today three generations work closely together. Day-to-day operations are handled personally by brothers Pierre and Jean Trimbach, representing the 12th generation. Bernard and Hubert Trimbach, the 11th generation (father and uncle, respectively, to Pierre and Jean) remain integrally involved. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the family business.
The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great aging potential.
