Traminer was a familiar wine in German-speaking areas as far back as the 13th century. Today this aromatic wine is one of the most popular in Alto Adige. As the name indicates, the Gewürztraminer originates from the Alto Adige village of Termeno (Tramin in German). The grapes, which are harvested from selected sites, produce a wine that is intensely fruity and full-flavored with a zesty opulence.
