The name may sound unfamiliar ("gewurz" is the German word for spice; "traminer" refers to the grape's place of origin), but you'll recognize this wine's rich full-bodied flavors.

Where Does It Come From?

Primarily cultivated in Alsace, France, and in Germany, this cool-weather grape is grown elsewhere in limited amounts, including the United States (Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and New York), Austria, and Hungary.

How Does It Taste?

Available in dry, off-dry, and sweet ("late harvest") varieties, these wines have a floral quality balanced by the aroma of nutmeg and cloves.

What Foods Does It Go With?

Gewurztraminer's crisp acidity goes well with spicy foods, especially Asian dishes; the sweeter varieties are best with cheese or dessert.

How Much Does It Cost?

There's no need to spend more than $15 to get a good bottle.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
