Peter‘s World of Wine

Everyone has a best friend. But the only true friend is standing behind the bar with his sleeves rolled up and a smile on his face. The author of these lines is unknown, but they sound like Peter might have written them. You don’t like wine? We won’t lock you up in the cellar for this statement, buuuut you’d better watch out! Because in our opinion: Whoever says something like this has not yet tasted enough fine wines. We think that there is a wine for everyone. And Peter will find it for you in our Gourmet Hotel near Merano …

  • Individually tailored wine advice (also for not-yet-wine-drinkers)
  • Regional wines from the country’s wineries as well as from small, unknown winegrowers
  • Special wine weeks for lovers of fine wines
  • Wine safari in a classic car with Peter

Happy Hour at the Cocktail Bar

Cocktails don’t solve problems, but neither does water.
So: Let this evening beGIN – from 9 pm, we pop the corks at our hotel bar. Fancy a special cocktail creation? Then Peter is your man.
By the way: Unfortunately, you can’t hire Peter as a private bartender for your home, but you can learn from him how to create excellent cocktails very easily and without a lot of frills …

The empty glasses at the bar are the best magnifiers on life.

Catherina’s Pine Gold

When life gives you a pine cone, make liqueur.
In collaboration with the distiller Peter Ilmer, host Catherina has reinterpreted the traditional Swiss mountain pine. The result is “pine gold”, a mountain pine liqueur made from the cones of the mountain pine. The resinous, spicy scent of the mountain pine is said to have a stimulating and calming effect.
