Unique hotel with a sumptuous wine tasting in the farmhouse parlor

Hotel Girlanerhof

Nestled within a placid, hilly landscape amidst vineyards and orchards, the Vinum Hotel offers warm, traditional South Tyrolean hospitality paired with picture-perfect vistas of the Mendel Massif and Adige Valley.

The Girlanerhof is situated on a glacial moraine hill, which was caused by the north-to-south movement of glaciers from three different valleys. As a result, this wine hill is unrivaled in South Tyrol for its rich diversity of minerals. This is the main reason, together with the mild microclimate found here, that the wines of Girlano/Girlan attain so much sophistication and power. The Hotel Girlanerhof’s top-notch cuisine is equally inspired: here, traditional South Tyrolean specialties are expertly combined with dishes from the Mediterranean and the South. Girlanerhof’s wine cellar is also well stocked with meticulously selected wines, and the knowledgeable sommeliers are friendly and helpful.

In the village of Girlano, wine takes center stage. In fact, the locals even say that more of their village lies underground than aboveground – that is, there is more cellar space than living space. The Girlanerhof staff would be happy to accompany you to wine tastings and winery tours in the village. Guests who enjoy plenty of physical activity while on holiday will also be in their element here: with the two picturesque, forest-ringed Montiggler Seen Lakes as well as Kalterer See Lake and many cycling paths and castles, there’s no risk of being bored here.
