Jean-Louis and Andrée Trapet are best known for their exquisite Grand Cru Burgundies, but they take bring the same attention to detail and commitment to biodynamic farming to their small domaine in Alsace.

Andrée grew up in a family of winemakers in Riquewihr, in the heart of Alsace, and she now farms her family’s vines there along with her husband and two sons. They carefully farm most of the well-known classic Alsatian grape varieties here, including riesling, gewürztraminer, pinot gris, and pinot noir, as well as the lesser-known pinot auxerrois.

In addition to the profound wines from their four top Grands Crus – Schoenenburg, Schlossberg,Sonnenglanz, and Sporen – they make exceptional ‘village’ wines that highlight the excellent terroirs of Riquewihr and Beblenheim. The winemaking leans toward the drier side of Alsace, and features natural fermentations and long aging on lees in well-used barrels of various sizes and concrete eggs.
