Regional Features & Food Pairings

Traminer is widely spread in Europe, with production in Austria, Germany, France, Italy, and Switzerland. It is also grown in other parts of the world, such as in the US, Australia, and South Africa. Traminer grapes are highly sensitive to frost, so growers must choose sites with good airflow and protection from cold. The grapes have thick skins, which help preserve their concentration of sugar and aroma. Winemakers usually ferment Traminer in stainless steel tanks, which helps retain the grape's freshness and complexity. Traminer wines differ significantly based on the region of production. In Germany, Traminer wines are usually dry and full-bodied. In Austria, the wines tend to be sweet and light-bodied. In France, the wines are medium-bodied and often have a floral bouquet. Particularly in the Jura region, where the grape is called Savagnin, the wine is made in an oxidative style with characteristic nutty aroma and yellow colour, called Vin Jaune. The dryness and minerality of Traminer make it a great accompaniment to fish and seafood.

Nestled in the southern reaches of Tuscany, Fattoria Le Pupille, founded in the late 18th century, underwent a transformation under the visionary leadership of Elisabetta Geppetti in 1985. Perched on a hill above the village of Pereta, the medieval farmhouses, named "Le Pupille" ("the pupils"), overlook the serene landscape. Despite the Maremma region's modest viticulture in her youth, Geppetti recognized its untapped potential, awakening the region from its slumber. Fattoria le Pupille Poggio Argentato Bianco, a testament to Geppetti's vision, is a delightful white wine from Tuscany. Crafted with precision, it reflects the unique terroir, offering vibrant acidity, crisp fruit flavors, and a touch of minerality—a versatile choice for any occasion.
