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.

Sensations also recur on the palate, where the charming nature of this Müller Thurgau also comes to fruition. An uncomplicated wine in a simple style, fresh and easy to drink. Served chilled, it is a good accompaniment to the most varied of dishes, especially freshwater fish.
It is full ruby in colour with violet reflexes, fresh and intensely fruity on the nose, fragrant with a flavour of woodland berry fruits on the palate and a lightly almondy finish.
