The Hotel Gardena Grödnerhof is a 5-star gourmet and spa facility in Val Gardena (Italy).

 

I was recently (as of February 2016) staying in the village of Ortisei on a ski vacation in the Dolomites (i.e. Val Gardena) with some friends. This community has one (1-star) Guide Michelin restaurant named Anna Stuben, which is a family-run restaurant located in the Hotel Gardena Grödnerhof with a firm focus on local Alpine produce on the menu.

Chef Reimund Brunner use high quality local and regional products and we were recommended a couple of really good local wines by the sommelier Franz Lageder (awarded “Sommelier 2014 South Tyrol” by the “Der Große Restaurant & Hotel” Guide)

We opted for the 6-course Reimund Brunner Degustation Menu:
