Staff Pick Notes

Gewurztraminer is the red-headed step-child of wine varietals. It gets no love from the Sommeliers and wine geeks who act as arbiters of taste. However, in the hands a supremely talented winemaker like Markus Prackwieser it can express terroir and its varietal characteristics as well as any other international varietal, perhaps even better.

The pink-skinned Gewürztraminer does best in cooler climates,...
