Tramin is the cradle of Gewurztraminer, and the village claims the best vineyards dedicated to the variety planted around the village the west bank of the Adige valley. Gewurztraminer has a distinctive reddish-yellow colour with green hues when fully mature. The most famous vineyards are in the Tramin subzones of Soll (Sella) and Rungg (Ronchi), where the wine becomes rich and silky in texture, minerally and structured.
