Gertie Gewurztraminer

Gertie is a limited production single-varietal Gewürztraminer wine from a single Russian River Valley vineyard.

Soft off-white color with a tinge of gold and a gorgeous aromatic bouquet of white lavender and violets.

Gertie delivers a dry, yet juicy mouthful of lychee, mango, peach, and honeysuckle-lime notes with just the illusion of sweetness.

A dry wine with a lovely harmonious balance of acidity and tannin showing a clean bright finish.

Naturally complex and with an exuberant expression, this wine is extremely versatile when paired with food.

Gewürztraminer or Gertie refers to the spicy Traminer grape.

It's history was recorded in the village of Tramin, in South Tyrol from the first century, then spreading down the Rhine to Alsace where Gewürz (spice) was added to its name.

In France, the Gewürztraminer name was used in Alsace from 1870 however in 973 the name Traminer was discontinued by the French in Alsace where the grape is simply known as Gewurz or Gertie.

Chilled, Gertie wine serves well by itself as an aperitif and will pair with zesty-flavored fare like BBQ chicken wings and will certainly go well with Thai, Indian, Turkish, Morrocan, Mediterranean and Lebanese dishes using either chicken and fish. It is also the all-time-classic pairing for Thanksgiving turkey and all its customary fixings.

Gertie ~ playful and full of energy, complex, exuberant and extremely versatile .

Why "Gertie" ~ Gertrude Sanford Legendre, heiress, explorer, socialite, spy, native of South Carolina, a daring, fearless and extremely versatile woman. (1902 - 2000)

The feminist daughter of a wealthy New York industrialist, Gertie shot her first big game in her teens. During the Roaring Twenties she partied on the French Riviera with the American ex-pat Scott Fitzgerald and drove Harpo Marx around in her convertible. Gertie’s hunger for adventure took her on safaris to Africa, the Far East, India and Iran, usually in the company of her beloved husband Sidney.

During World War II Gertie worked for the OSS, America's first spy agency. She was captured and held prisoner by the Germans for six months then made a daring escape over the Swiss border. Legend has it that she would only drink French Gewurztraminer, and called it Gertie!
