The quality guarantee of our Michelin-awarded star chefs, the simultaneous world-renown of the distinguished local South Tyrolean wines, the diversity and uniqueness of the South Tyrolean landscape and its high-quality produce, all help to make the holiday region of Merano and environs an Eldorado for lovers of gourmet cuisine.
Five Michelin-awarded star chefs, three castles rich in history, fifteen Alpine huts, five guided mountain hikes: these make up the ingredients for the Gourmet Dinner series Stars Castles Mountains 2013, to take place between May and October 2013, combining exquisite cuisine, selected wines and breathtaking locations for a total dining experience.
The highlight of the Stars Castles Mountains series are three gala dinners which will take place in historical castles in the holiday region of Merano and Environs, where the five Michelin-awarded star chefs will join together to create a five-course menu. Each will contribute equally in his or her own way and signature style, always taking care to retain the authenticity of taste and ingredients derived from natural products. A special highlight of the Stars Castles Mountains series is the Gala Dinner to be held in the famous Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. At this event guests can enjoy the finest haute cuisine in an atmospheric garden ambience.
In addition, all through the summer, visitors will also have the opportunity to taste a specially prepared dish in 15 selected Alpine huts, which will be prepared according to the strict specifications of one of the five Michelin-awarded star chefs by the innkeeper. Naturally, these will make use of fresh natural produce from the Alpine pastures.
Guided Alpine hikes with the Michelin-awarded star chefs round off the offer. This is a unique opportunity to get to know and love the countryside, the people and the gourmet landscape.
