Trapet Alsace

"Trapet? Isn't that in Burgundy?" Correct! Jean-Louis Trapet has his Home in Gevrey-Chambertin and sets the tone for Pinot Noir there. His wife Andrée comes from Riquewihr in Alsace and didn't want to give up his parents' business.

The two wineries complement each other excellently through their different focuses. The high quality understanding unites them. Jean-Louis and Andrée manage the farms with the utmost meticulousness and according to biodynamic principles. The soil, the sites and the decoding of the origin are in focus. It is important to the Trapet family to accompany the vine in its development and not to dominate it. In the cellar, the same credo applies to the nascent wine. The expectation of the name Trapet is also decisive for the production of the wines in Alsace.

- "People come and go, the ground stays."
