Wine Expedition

The fascination of the vineyard

Enjoy a day trekking from vineyard to vineyard and taste our Cru wines at their place of origin.

Kurtatsch Wine Expedition

Experience a unique and entertaining panoramic hike, savor our culinary specialties and discover why our vineyard sites are unique in Europe.

Procedure

Altitudes ranging from 220 to 900 metres, southeast and southwest exposures, and soils varying from sandygravely to rocky to red-clay lend each wine its own individual character. The meticulous endeavor to produce wines that reflect their terroir creates distinctive and unmistakable wines. In the cellar we let the wine unfold itself - so each wine reflects its place of origin. Vineyard by Vineyard. Wine by Wine.

Join us on an expedition in exploration of the best sites, and taste each wine directly at its place of origin. In a full-day tour you will hike with one of our professional guides through our vineyards from 900 m up to 220 m and taste 12 wines of our TERROIR line in their respective locations. At the typical morning snack, the so-called "Holbmittog", and the 3-course lunch in one of the top restaurants in Kurtatsch you can enjoy culinary specialties.

Cuisine

Cuisine

What would good wine be without the matching dish? Our Wine Expedition includes two culinary stops: for a typical South Tyrolean “Brettljause” (snack) we stop at the Torgglhof in Penon, and the 3-course lunch is served by one of the top Kurtatsch restaurateurs!

Torgglhof

Spectacular view meets fine, refined dishes! The young junior chef Alex conjures up his creations on the plate throughout the year. The motto: high-quality products, without a lot of frills but with a lot of taste!

Terzer

The second-generation Terzer restaurant with chef Valentin is fully committed to the philosophy "fresh, fresher, the freshest". Regional (and mostly even "from Kurtatsch") is the trump card here: whether trout and char from their own well, vegetables from the own field or from a Kurtatsch farmer or meat from local producers. Special highlight: the large sun terrace, which invites you to sit outside all year round.

Schwarz Adler

With its eventful, centuries-old history, the Schwarz Adler is one of the established names in Kurtatsch.  In the lovingly renovated vaults, you can enjoy upscale South Tyrolean cuisine in a historic atmosphere. The specialties of the house are delicious meat dishes, prepared on the wood oven grill.
