Varietal: Gewurztraminer
With it’s distinctive floral and tropical fruit aromas reminiscient of lychee and it’s pink colored skin, Gewurztraminer is, both as a grape in the vineyard and wine in the glass, one of the most recognizable varieties. It’s name is derived from it’s parent Traminer and ‘Gerurz’ the Germany for spice, although this refers to its pungent and perfumed aromatic quality rather than anything inherently spicy. The grape’s pink skins add a depth of color and combine with its high alcohol (typircally around 14% due to its ability to accumulate sugar) to produce wine with lots of body and flavor. The grape is most common in the French and Germany regions of Alsace and Pfalz, but it also becoming more popular in cool climate New World sites in New Zealand and Washington State.

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: California
California is one of the most diverse wine producing regions of the world. Although it has a history spanning over 200 years, it has experienced most of its growth in the last fifty years. The regions of Napa Valley and Sonoma County have become as renowned as France’s Bordeaux and Burgundy. While Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay are by far the most popular fine wine varieties, producers in the Golden State have also experimented with an unparalleled array of diverse varieties, including Zinfandel, Syrah, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, and Tempranillo.

Sub-Region: Central Coast
The Central Coast is the largest AVA and includes the famous appellations of Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara and Santa Maria Valleys.

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
