Wine-lovers will rejoice!
Wine vacation in South Tyrol – South Tyrol is the land of mountains, but also the land of wine. The wine region of South Tyrol is home to more than 20 different varieties of grape cultivated on approx. 5,400 hectares of land. It’s an El Dorado for wine connoisseurs! The aromatic Gewürztraminer, the full-bodied Lagrein, and the light Vernatsch are the three varieties of grape which originated in South Tyrol. Here at the Strahlerhof, we cultivate two kinds of grape: the fruity Vernatsch and the elegant Pinot Blanc.
Watch and learn from the vintners.

Then you should take part in a wine-tasting or a guides tour here at the Strahlerhof led by our expert and Sommelier, Verena, and sample some of our local wines.

Our tip: A visit to the St. Michael winery.
The St. Michael-Eppan Winery has been part of South Tyrol’s most important wine-growing community for over 100 years: Eppan an der Weinstraße. The cultivation area with 385 hectares of vineyards has excellent characteristics for the production of distinctive wines. As one of the 330 winegrowing families, our great passion is viticulture, with which we have been connected for generations. Verena’s great-great-grandfather was a founding member of the cellar cooperative, and we have been bringing our grapes to the “Michealer Kellerei” ever since.
