Who doesn’t love Maison Trimbach? Since 1626 and across 13 generations, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs, and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together to honor their remarkable legacy of producing wines that are structured, long-lived, fruit forward, elegant, and balanced—the celebrated Trimbach style. A benchmark for Alsace wines, this style is achieved by producing the finest dry and balanced wines with no malolactic fermentation and no new oak aging- a style that can develop gracefully for years.
I had the pleasure of having lunch with Jean Trimbach, proprietor of Maison Trimbach at Novikov Miami. Jean Trimbach, of the 12th generation, has over 25 years of experience working for Maison Trimbach. He travels around the world to carry the Trimbach message, educating customers, friends, and ambassadors in the field.
Over an amazing wine-paired lunch, Jean gave us an exclusive look at the rich family history and how the remarkable terroir—combined with the enthusiasm and ambition of the Trimbach family—keeps their winemaking tradition, rigor, and know-how alive, while elevating their wines to the very peak of perfection.
