Pleasure is always in season

Hotel Ansitz Plantitscherhof

As a result of the international Merano WineFestival, the spa resort of Merano elevated its status to that of Italy's secret wine capital long ago. The Hotel Ansitz Plantitscherhof is one of the main pillars of Merano's wine culture not only due to its impressive cellars, but also because of the great expertise of its sommeliers and the hotelier himself, Johannes
Gufler. When he graduated from his certification program at the tender age of 23, Gufler was Italy's youngest sommelier.

Johannes Gufler is a epicure who loves to share this passion with guests. Over the course of time, his interest in wine grew and then, later on, he also became interested in special whiskeys and fine distillates; his collection of rare wines in the hotel cellar was also growing larger. About 3,000 South Tyrolean treasures that can no longer be found in wineries or from
vintners are stored here. A tasting of rare wines with your host Johannes Gufler, in addition to the wine tasting, is thus a special wine experience.

Unforgettable wine experiences are guaranteed when Johannes Gufler personally takes guests on a wine tour in his vintage VW “Bulli” bus – he heads directly to the vineyards
and lets participants in on the secrets that make South Tyrolean wines unique.
