Gewürztraminer

Don't be dismayed by its tongue-twisting name or you’ll miss out on one of the most aromatic wines you’re likely to find.

Simply called "guh-VERTZ," this white German variety is a spicy wine whose characteristics include grapefruit and orchard fruit aromas and flavors.

A great match with Asian-inspired cuisine, Gewürztraminer often is crafted with a touch of residual sweetness, making it perfect for everything from picnics to fine dining.

Gewürztraminer is made in limited quantities throughout the Northwest.
