History: Starting from its place of birth in the village Termeno (Tramin) in the southern South Tyrol, this variety conquered almost the whole world. Still, it shows its best characteristics in its home country, with its typical spicy (cloves), floral (roses) and fruity (lychee) notes.

Vineyards: The grapes of our Gewürztraminer grow on the hills around Bolzano: S. Pietro, S. Giorgio e Guncina and at Caldaro.

Vinification: After a slow pressing of 5-6 hours, the wine ferments at 20°C, and after it matures in stainless steel tanks. The conservation of the typical aromas has the utmost
priority

Label: The Alpine ibex is our heraldic animal, and serves as the motif of the collection's label. The bright choice of colour and the light playfulness should convey the youthful freshness and fun that we hope for while drinking our wines
