Wine-tasting hotel with winery in Appiano
The Stroblhof Hotel and Winery has stunned the Schloss Eppan Castle area with its elegant, restrained architecte. There is nothing obtrusive here: the natural bathing pond is nestled into the hill, lined with chestnuts; the sauna, swimming and spa complex is also hidden within the hills, as is the winery, which is equipped with all the modern technology. Perhaps it was the cool fall winds that blow towards Stroblhof, at the foot of Gantkofelsturze, which shielded the head of the Hanni-Nicolussi family from an “overblown” conversion.
Here, subtle design and renovation in keeping with the historically grown wine landscape are consistently practiced. The elegant, always well-dressed owner, Andreas Nicolussi-Leak is a personality in the Independent Winegrowers of South Tyrol. The farsighted winemaker has fully recognized the potential of the Stroblhof wine estates, especially with his Burgundian varieties. The Strahler Pinot blanc and the Pinot noir riserva are absolute premium wines that would hold their own in an international comparison of top wines.
The Hotel Stroblhof, geared towards wine and gastronomy, has been run by the family since 1900. Its enchanting location in the heart of Eppan’s best-known wineries allows guests to enjoy a wholly relaxing day in the countryside. The gourmet cuisine has been inspired by regional and Mediterranean lightness.
