History

The Gewurztraminer is a particularly aromatic selection of an old grape variety known from time immemorial in Alsace, the Traminer rose. In the past, and especially when its wine was a little less characteristic, it was known as Traminer. Etymologically, the name Gewurztraminer literally means "spicy" Traminer.

Its grains are quite small, pink-brown in colour, and the skin contains constituents with very full-bodied flavours. It has found its favourite terroir in the Alsatian vineyard.
