Toque your pick!

In the gourmet region of South Tyrol, numerous top chefs have been awarded toques from the renowned Gault&Millau gourmet guide. 

Alongside the Michelin stars, the Gault-Millau chef's hats, also known as toques, are among the most coveted awards in haute cuisine. Once a year, the renowned restaurant guide Gault&Millau publishes its ‘Genussguide Südtirol’ (Culinary Guide to South Tyrol) and awards prizes to our best restaurants. Who will be featured in it? Chefs who use local products, creatively interpret our local cuisine culture and develop it further in an innovative way. Chefs like Gerhard Wieser, who focuses on natural, Alpine-Mediterranean cuisine at Castel finedining (formerly Trenkerstube) in Dorf Tirol/Tirolo. The same goes for top chef Norbert Niederkofler, who was in charge of the kitchen at St.Hubertus located at the Hotel Rosa Alpina in San Ćiascian/San Cassiano. In accordance with his kitchen philosophy “Cook the Mountain”, he combines regional raw materials and food from the mountains to create innovative dishes.

The pinnacle of wine

From South Tyrol to the world: renowned wine guides regularly award prizes to wines of Alto Adige. Which white and red wines are particularly well received?

Our winegrowers cultivate Alto Adige wines with passion, a spirit of innovation and know-how that has been passed down and allowed to grow for many generations. Around 20 different grape varieties thrive on an area of 5,700 hectares. Coupled with our contrasting climate, the different high altitudes and soil types, they repeatedly achieve the highest ratings from international wine guides.

Every year, Alto Adige white wines, red wines and sweet wines compete for the best ranks in Italian and international wine guides, such as Veronelli, Gambero Rosso, L'Espresso, Doctor Wine, Decanter, Falstaff and Robert Parker. In addition to great classics from renowned vineyards and wineries, there are always surprises from newcomers that impress the wine scene. Click here for a list of our excellent wines.
