Gewürztraminer

Gewürztraminer is one of the autochthonous wine grape varieties grown in the South Tyrolean regions Bassa Atesina and Oltradige and goes well with Asiatic cuisine.

Gewürztraminer is one of the oldest wine grapes cultivated in South Tyrol. It is also called “Roter Traminer“ since it is reddish and not yellow in colour. The smell of the grape is enchanting, its aroma of roses is very long lasting. Gewürztraminer requires South Tyrolean’s alpine-mediterranean climate and warm, sandy and loamy soil. Once grown overheat on pergolas, today Gewürztraminer is mainly grown according to the so-called trellis system.

Gewürztraminer is particularly popular in Italy. It is full-bodied, has a very intensive gold-yellow colour and a unique aroma of roses, ripe fruits, lychees and cloves. Its alcohol content can reach up to 14%. Gewürztraminer can be served as an aperitif and goes well with langoustes and lobsters, aromatic starters and roast fish.
