Gewürztraminer Wine Information



Most people think of Gewürztraminer as the sweet white wine with the unpronounceable name. Originally from Germany, Gewürztraminer is pronounced 'ga-VERTZ-trah-MEE-ner' - the name means Spice Grapes. It is primarily grown in Germany, Alsace France, and in smaller amounts in California and Australia.

Gewürztraminer tend to be a sweet white wine, although they do make dry versions. The aroma is a flowery, spicy one, with particular odors of roses and lychees. While you often can drink Gewürztraminers young, some benefit from 2-4 years worth of aging. It should be served at around 50F.
