    The Gewürztraminer effectively has taken root all over the world and is an undisputed icon here in Tramin, the place that gave the wine its name. And that’s exactly how it’s handled, this golden white wine that is believed to be so many things.

    Yellow, red, blue, dotted, small, large, round and oblong, waxy and floury anyway – potato varieties are like stars in the sky.

    Cider was often considered to be a rustic drink for farmers. With a lot of dedication, our farmers have made the fruity thirst quencher socially acceptable. As a rediscovered cult(ural) drink, the purely natural product is also a delicacy for connoisseurs and has already become an established part of high-end gastronomy in many places.
