Wine-tasting hotel with lido in Caldaro
Situated on the western shore of picturesque Kalterer See Lake, the modern Hotel Seeleiten abuts the area's best-known vineyards: behind the hotel is Römigberg, where the highly esteemed vintner Alois Lageder harvests his premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Cor; on the southern flank, there's Arzenhof (Bordeaux blend Arzio, Baron Di Pauli / Kaltern Winery); and in the north the best vineyards sites of Manincor Winery.
Like at all of the Vinum Hotels, wines naturally take center stage at Seeleiten: the hotelier Franz Moser is a certified sommelier and passionate about wine tastings, which he offers every day in the romantic stone cellar. The restaurant’s Mediterranean-inspired South Tyrolean cuisine is also in keeping with the five-star level of this upscale, gourmet hotel.
The private beach with lake house promises relaxation and an idyllic place to unwind, as do the entire spa complex and the many little corners and niches in the spacious garden behind the hotel.
The wine-growing district of Kaltern is an ideal holiday spot for anyone who loves wine. A visit to the wine museum in the village center is fascinating – just like taking a stroll through the history of South Tyrol’s viticultural development, all the way from Roman times right up to the present day. For those who like to stay active during the holidays, the vineyard poster is highly recommended: this map of the winegrowing region shows all of the vineyards in Kaltern, as well as the wine trails. Hotel guests can conveniently start off on their first hike just a stone's throw behind the Wellnesshotel Seeleiten. Seeleiten guests may also request to be accompanied on a relaxed wine hike, or guided cellar tours of the region’s major wine producers.
