The Cuisine of the Hotel Tyrol in Villnösstal Valley
Gastronomic excellence at the Hotel Tyrol in Trentino-South Tyrol
Guests of the Hotel Tyrol in Villnösstal Valley rightly expect to be served South Tyrolean peasant dishes and Mediterranean specialties. To paraphrase the biblical saying: man cannot live by dumplings alone. For this very reason our team in the kitchen creatively combines traditional South Tyrolean platters with the light and sophisticated touch of Italian Mediterranean cuisine. Fresh, local ingredients such as vegetables grown in our valley or the succulent local Villnösser Brillenschaft ‘bespectacled sheep’ are always utilised.
And since gastronomic enjoyment is not limited to the cuisine itself, we also take care of the other aspects of the fine dining experience such as wine pairing, soft lighting, a harmonious ambience, table décor and an attentive waiting service in order to round off your holiday at the Hotel Tyrol.
Ecological Sustainability and Local Sourcing at the Hotel Tyrol
Slow Living – local organic products
At the Hotel Tyrol in Villnösstal Valley, ecological sustainability and local sourcing of ingredients and other products are prioritised. These include woollen by-products of local Villnösser Brillenschaft ‘bespectacled sheep’, and sustainable production of energy.
However, it is mostly in the kitchen that this choice is exercised. The ingredients in our dishes are almost exclusively sourced from regional suppliers and, whenever possible, are organically farmed. The vegetables we use are cultivated in our valley. Our beef is sourced from some 15 farmers who breed the Grey Alpine cattle only in Villnösstal Valley. Our gourmet dishes are made with Villnösser Brillenschaf, the “bespectacled sheep” of the Villnösstal Valley, the oldest breed of sheep in South Tyrol. The mutton is listed in the Slow Food directory, which is a guarantee of authenticity and in accordance with sustainable farming practices in the region.
We firmly believe in contributing to the welfare of our land and in the implementation of the principles of “Slow Living”, for a slower and better life for all.
