I bought Benmarl 2008 Traminette at the New Amsterdam Market today. I did not know very much about that varietal, but I tasted it and enjoyed it. I think it is a little like gewurztraminer. Is this a new varietal?


Traminette is actually a cross of hybrid Joannes Seyve 23.416 and gewürztraminer! So you hit that on the head.

It's not new though...I think the cross was done in the 1960s.


Thanks for the info! I asked them at Benmar about the baco noir and they said they were still bottling it. I look forward to trying that.
