The single vineyard Joseph Gewürztraminer comes from grapes grown on the west side of the Adige River, where it enjoys the morning sun and brisk mountain fall winds provide sufficient coolness in the evening. This is a full-bodied, luscious but dry wine.

The J. Hofstätter winery is located in Tramin-Termeno in Alto Adige (Südtyrol). Gewürztraminer has been grown in this region in milleniums. This grape variety yields elegant dry wines with harmonious acidity in the South Tyrol Alps. The grapes ripen quite slowly in the persistent coolness and are handpicked in November. At this point they are beginning to shrivel and are particularly flavourful. The Joseph Gewürztraminer is a highly individual wine and a copybook gewürztraminer.
