Originating in Germany, the Gewürztraminer’s homeland lies in the foothills of the Alps. Like the Pinot Grigio, this pink grape grows really well in cooler climates. Literally translated, Gewürztraminer means “spiced Traminer” in reference to its heritage as a mutation of the Traminer family of grapes. Alsace is now the world’s largest Gewürztraminer producer, but it is also grown throughout other wine making regions in the world including Italy, Australia, and the Unites States.
