Kräuterschlössl herb castle
Coldrano/Goldrain, Latsch/Laces, Vinschgau/Val Venosta
The herb castle in Coldrano attracts attention from afar. The radiant yellow of the facade seems like a splash of colour, a shooting one, in the midst of large-scale, green and groomed apple orchads. It is indeed a small paradise for the senses, a botanical world of its own. Nature in spades, a sea of blossoms aromatically fragrant, spreads out in the herb garden and lovingly encloses the show garden of the herb castle. However, herbs are not only to be found on the ground at the herb castle, but also at lofty heights. On the roof terrace we have set up a love nest, the love garden. Everything is free accesible to everyone, 7 days a week.
In the herb fields in Coldrano (700m above sea level) and Taufers/Tubres (1.400m above sea level) the herbs are cultivated, harvested, dehumidified and refined into quality products from 3 generations with much diligence and love. In keeping with the ecological cultivated methods of the "Bund alternativer Anbau" (association of alternative growers), plant growth is promoted trough targeted soil cultivation, diversity in cultivation and oragnic fertiliser.
The variety in the fields is as rich as the product selection in the farm shop - a real treasure trove for the environmentally conscious:
-herbs, tea and spice blends, herbal salt, pasta, vinegrads and oil
-honeys and fruit honeys from our own apiary
-fruit spreads, syrups, chocolates and sweets
-healing oinments, cosmetics and perfume
The farm shop is open 7 days a week, all products are also available online.
Guided tours are available on request with a minimum of 10 participants.
