The „Traminer“ was known in German speaking areas as far back as the 13th century. Today it ranges amongst the most popular South Tyrolean wines. As the name itself implies, the Gewürztraminer has its roots in the small village of Tramin. Steep slopes – selected by the chief winemaker himself – yield a wine, which seduces with intense fruitiness, a full body and zesty richness.
