The Weinmesser is one of the world’s top 10 wine hotels

At the Weinmesser, the 1st wine hotel in South Tyrol, you can taste finest wine while enjoying a wonderful holiday. In January 2017, our holiday home in Scena/Schenna received the award “World’s top 10 wine hotel” by the lifestyle publishing house and guide for wine & more, Falstaff. The Weinmesser impressed with its unique surroundings, stylish living comfort, excellent service and, last but not least, its extraordinary wine menu.

Your host Christian is back in the kitchen!

“Since June 2021, I’ve been managing the kitchen myself again. Through all the years, I never lost my love of cooking. Over the last few years, I’ve been able to dedicate myself completely to my passion for wine, and have also made my dream of opening my own vinothek come true. But now, I’ve come back to my true roots: the kitchen. My motivated team spoils our guests with superlative creations. For me, it’s extremely important that our plates don’t just look attractive, but also make local products shine with refined flavour combinations. I only use high-quality, and more importantly, regional ingredients, as I’ve always done. What I enjoy the most is presenting traditional South Tyrolean cuisine in a “crazy” way – get ready to be pleasantly surprised! And of course, the matching wine is also part of a successful evening, which we as certified sommeliers recommend to you course by course.”
