This variety is one of the most popular white wines in Alto Adige. Our Gew?rztraminer owes its character to a combination of grapes from two wine-growing areas: The warm sites around Termeno give the wine substance, body and sweetness, while the higher and cooler sites in Valle Isarco confer freshness, finesse and a fine aromatic structure. There can be more than six weeks difference between the grape harvests in the Bassa Atesina and in Valle Isarco.
