Gewurztraminer -- a tough word to pronounce but a very easy wine to drink. Gewurz is the German word for "Spicy" and "Traminer" is the actual grape type (like "Merlot."). Gewurztraminers are typically both spicy and sweet at the same time. The bouquet on this type of wine is like you've fallen nose first into a field of spring flowers.
The home of Gewurztraminer is the Alsace region of France. Alsace shares a border with Germany along the Rhine river. The area is very similar in terrain and climate to the German wine regions and the kind of wines produced in Alsace are a fascinating blend of both French and German winemaking methods and traditions.
The world’s most famous Gewurztraminers come from Alsace and the only genuine dry kosher and Mevushal Alsatian Gewurztraminer comes from Abarbanel.
