As Voltaire declared in one of his verses, "Wine is the nightingale among drinks". In effect, it is just that: a glass of wine helps to raise the spirit and helps one forget about the woes of everyday life. What would a gourmet menu be were it not accompanied by the right wines? In fact, the Hohenwart's excellent wine selection serves to best complement the gourmet cuisine of Chef Markus Marmsoler with around 400 regional and mostly Italian wines stocked in the cellar. Thanks to the wide variety, they cover a wide spectrum, from the subtle to full-flavoured, starting with aperitifs and dry whites, continuing up to full-bodied reds with complex flavours and ending with the sweet dessert wines and finally, a selection of digestive liqueurs.
The Hohenwart's wine cellar is managed by our capable and experienced sommelier, Klaus Ramoser. His former hobby was turned into a business and he is always ready to best advise as to the best choice of aromatic beverages to best accompany your meals. Working with wines at Hohenwart for over 10 years, he is always on the lookout for the best buys especially South Tyrolean and Italian wines and vintners, to satisfy even the most discerning palates.
If you also happen to be a wine connoisseur yourself, you can take part in one of the Hohenwart's weekly wine workshops that also include tastings. You'll have the opportunity to learn more about the origin and history of the featured wines, the different aromas contributing to the wine flavours and be able to discuss some of the more technical aspects of winemaking with our sommeliers.
In addition, we arrange thematic tastings and pairings, under headings such as Cheese and dessert wine or Lively Grappas.
In addition to wines and distillates, the cellar also stocks antique varieties of olive oil and balsamic vinegars. These are also for sale - as a gift or to take home a souvenir of the pleasant holidays spent at the Hohenwart.
