Winemakers on the mountain

In summer too, star winemakers from the best-known wine growing regions in Austria are coming to the chalet restaurant Einkehr in Bad Kleinkirchheim for a very special “summit meeting”. With our series of “Winemakers on the mountain” events, throughout the summer selected top vineyards such as Hannes Sabathi or Wieninger from Austria will form the focus of our culinary gourmet weekends.

On these weekends there is an exquisite programme that will not just appeal to wine lovers. It includes a wine tasting with stories on the subject of wine offered by the winemakers themselves, with the appropriate cuisine forming part of the programme.

Here a tasting menu awaits you comprising Carinthian delicacies and delicious titbits which chef David Regenfelder, who has been awarded 81 points by the Falstaff Guide, has coordinated with the accompanying wines.

“Wine is an excellent way of connecting good taste with a deeper and spiritual dimension of life. So as well as wine tasting, during “Winemakers on the mountain” we also offer additional programme items that simply do you good”, says Jakob Forstnig about “Winemakers on the mountain”.

Our staff are thus continuing a much-loved tradition whose origin actually goes back centuries, because in 1642 the Jesuits awarded the landlord of the Trattlerhof the right to serve food and drink, a sort of old-style restaurant licence! At that time the landlords served grape juice, which was transported over the alpine passes in casks by pack animal drivers. The Chronicle of the Trattlerhof contains a bill from the 18th century which refers to the delivery of a 150-litre wine cask.

NEW: Gourmet package - attractive package with 2 exclusive bottles of wine and 2 fine wine glasses with a special price!
