Gewürztraminer

Don't be intimidated by the Gewürztraminer pronunciation: It's worth muddling through the name to sample these superbly rich and excitingly dry, off-dry and sweet wines. Gewurztraminer wine is made in the cool climates of Alsace, France, as well as Germany and Austria. Gewürztraminer also thrives in cool-climate regions of New Zealand, the U.S. Pacific Northwest, California, Australia and South Africa. However, its origin is in Italy’s mountainous northeastern region of Alto Adige, where the green-to-pink-colored grapes appear to have emerged from a cross between Italy’s Traminer grape and the Pinot family.
