Gewürztraminer has been documented since the Middle Ages, it also served as a mass wine around 1470. Around 1593, the writer Aegidius Albertinus warned women against excessive consumption of this seductive wine. Despite the light reddish berries, Gewürztraminer belongs to the white wine varieties. In the vineyard, the capricious grape variety is not considered one of the dream varieties of winemakers, because its yields are irregular, for this reason alone it never conquered large areas of cultivation. The unmistakable, sometimes opulent, bulky bouquet can be immediately attributed by most wine lovers. The finest and best Gewürztraminers are serious, delicate wines, with moderate and balanced fragrant aromas. Traminer is not dissimilar to Gewürztraminer, but with light green berries and far less strong in aroma.

Between 1500 and 1900 it became increasingly quiet about the cultivation of this vine. The current cultivation area of South Tyrol extends between Algund and Salurn. As a center of cultivation are considered the sites between Kaltern and Kurtatsch, with the classic sites around the village of Tramin. Since 1975, the South Tyrolean Gewürztraminer has been placed under DOC protection.
