This is a limited run production that produces less than 100 cases per year from grapes grown at Thompson Falls, Montana. Due to our short growing season in Montana, this wine is a very dry Gewurztraminer. Our 2006 Vintage was aged in stainless steel and has a crisp finish. Our 2007 Vintage was aged on American Oak for 16 months and has a softer oaky finish.

The first record of Gewurztraminer grapes is from around 1000 A.D. in the
Italian village of Traminer. Gewurztraminer grapes did not receive
widespread acceptance as a wine grape until they were grown in the
French area of Alsace along the German border. "Gewurz" is the German
word for spice. Traminer is the Italian village that first recorded growing
them. Thus the name, "spice of Traminer" was born. Gewurztraminer
grapes can produce dry wines to sweet wines and anything in between
depending upon the climate where they were grown. Flathead Lake
Winery specializes in making small-batch, handcrafted, unique wines from
fruit grown or picked wild in Montana. These grapes were grown by Steve
& Maureen Simonson on their second-generation family farm along the
Clark Fork River near the town of Thompson Falls. This wine is crisp,
clean, and has a long finish of tropical fruit. This wine is best served
chilled and compliments both fish and fowl. It goes especially well with
pheasant and fresh rainbow trout. The front label photo is Mount St.
