Winemaker's Notes:

Gewürztraminer is among the most exciting and aromatic varieties on earth. This 2010 screams with bright aromatic notes of pink grapefruit, lychee, candied ginger, orange blossoms and rose. Firm, crisp, and full palate with flavors of red grapefruit, lemon and lime zest. is balanced and refreshing wine is the perfect accompaniment to grilled seafood or spicy foods.

About Firestone:

Firestone Vineyard specializes in expressive high-quality wines from estate and select vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley and Paso Robles. Long considered a destination for visitors to Santa Barbara County's wine country, Firestone produces an array of Bordeaux-influenced wines in competitively-priced categories.

Founded in 1972 by Leonard and Brooks Firestone, Firestone Vineyard was Santa Barbara County’s first estate winery. In September 2007, Bill Foley acquired the Firestone winery and 380 vineyard acres in Los Olivos, as well as the Firestone tasting room in Paso Robles. Bill has continued the Firestone tradition in striving for the very best in vineyard management and cutting edge winemaking discipline. The vineyard focuses on optimal physiological balance in the vines yielding wines that are brightly flavored, crisp and delicious. Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah vineyards are located on a series of mesas that have gravelly sub-soils, ideally oriented for perfect exposure.
