Andrée Trapet (née Grayer-Pontius) is a passionate Alsatian winegrower and landowner of Domaine Trapet. Since 2002, the year she decided to continue her parents’ work, she tirelessly accompanies her Alsatian vines. Andrée is Jean-Louis Trapet’s wife. Both winemakers in biodynamics in exceptional places: Riquewihr in Alsace and Gevrey-Chambertin in Burgundy. She shares her time between Riquewihr and Gevrey, despite the two hours and a half by car that separate the two vineyards.
The Trapet estate has grown from 2 hectares to 15.5 hectares with presence in four grands crus: Schoenenbourg and Sporen in Riquewihr, Schlossberg in Kientzheim and Sonnenglanz in Beblenheim.
From the beginning, biodynamics was, according to Andrée, the necessary and unique condition for the development of her terroirs and her vines, so the Domaine was converted to biodynamics. The Domaine consisted of a few grands terroirs, including the Sonnenglanz grand cru. In 2006 came 3 grands crus: Sporen, Schlossberg and the historic grand cru Schoenenbourg. Her son Pierre arrived in 2017, followed the installation of 50 ares of vines in stakes, with an increase in planting density at 12,000 vines per hectare. Her other son, Louis, arrived in 2018. Together they make exceptional wines!
