A name writes history
The first wine hotel in South Tyrol takes its name from history. The ‘Weinmesser’ was an honourable man and sworn official in the South Tyrol region of Burggrafenamt. It was his duty to calibrate the wine casks and all the vessels used in viniculture. It was also his responsibility to load and unload wines.
Today many farms in Meraner Land still bear the name “Weinmesserhof”, one of them being the Hotel Der Weinmesser in Schenna. The first wine hotel in South Tyrol and its hosts, the Kohlgruber family, have a long tradition in wine-growing and hospitality.
Old values re-interpreted
Christian and Doris leave nothing to chance. Demonstrating passion and expertise, they are your hosts in a family-managed hotel which is traditional, one that moves with the times and offers guests an all-round contemporary experience based on the foundations laid by their forebears. Both aspects have made the history-charged Der Weinmesser an outstanding hotel for gourmets in Schennat.
