Gewürztraminer is a very old grapevine variety most likely of Italian origin (region Alto Adige of Termeno). In all likelihood, it spread into France (Alsace) through Germany (Palatinato). The first references for its cultivation date back to the 10th century A.D., however it did not spread in the other viticultural areas of Europe until the 16th century. Gewürztraminer is a grapevine variety of polyclonal synthesis and grapevine variety Savarine is included among its clones (Galet 1985). Gewürztraminer is a typical grapevine variety of Alsace and the regions near the Rhine, and one of the most widely cultivated varieties following Riesling. It is cultivated in relatively small surface areas in the majority of wine-producing countries, such as France (2500 ha), Moldavia (4300 ha), Germany (800 ha), California (1000 ha), Australia (600 ha). In Greece, Gewürztraminer has been recently imported and its cultivation is recommended for Prefectures of Arkadia, Argolida, Achaia, Grevena, Ioannina, Kozani, Florina. Gewürztraminer is known with various synonyms, which seem to correspond to specific clones with the aromatic character less or more developed , such as Savagnin rose aromatique, Gentil rose aromatique (Alsace), Traminer musqué, Red Traminer (California), Traminer aromatico (Italy) and other names.
