Fans of Gewürztraminer are pretty die-hard. Take a sip of this acclaimed find (gold at The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and silver at the Sommelier Challenge International Wine Competition) and you'll see their devotion is well deserved.
The grape's native home is Alsace, France – but it also thrives in California. Highway 253 is named for a picturesque road that weaves through some of northern California’s most famous vineyards, passing some top estates along the way.
You'll enjoy the bright, wonderfully aromatic style that California Gewürz is known for … look forward to leap-from-the-glass tropical and stone fruit aromas, with flavors of ripe, exotic lychee, Asian spices and peach. It's ideal with a ginger chicken stir-fry, Szechuan shrimp or Peking duck noodles.
