Wine cellar in the Romantic Hotel Krone

Fine wine in Vorarlberg – The Krone, gourmet hotel and restaurant

What is it that makes a wine good? Is it terroir, the work in the cellar, tending thevines with care? Well, all of that is important. Yet the most important thing is for the wine to taste good. And taste is something that is quite subjective.

A vault dating from the 17th century was exposed during the re-design of the Krone wine cellar. The handcrafted sampling table is both an individual piece and a decorative piece. The corks which can be seen beneath the glass top provide an inkling of the treasures in the cellar. Two qualified wine experts have so much to tell about each individual wine.
