The Domaines Schlumberger Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Kessler originates from the Grand Cru Kessler plot, first distinguished in 1394. Domaines Schlumberger owns 22 hectares of the 29-hectare plot, which lies on a bedrock of Vosges sandstone. A limestone outcrop gives the soil a clay character.
The viticultural origin of the Trimbach family dates back to 1626, when Jean Trimbach, was recognized as a citizen of Riquewihr. From then on, the Trimbach’s were renowned for their wine-growing. Maison Trimbach’s vineyards are all situated around Ribeauville (Ribeauville, Hunawihr, Bergheim, Rorschwihr, Riquewihr and Mittlewihr).
