Spa Hotel Jagdhof

By |  November 30 2020

The wine cellar at the five-star Spa Hotel Jagdhof in the Austrian Alps is nothing if not secure, housed as it is in what was once a nuclear bunker. A sensible precaution, perhaps, when you are holding upwards of 20,000 bottles, many of them old and rare.

Those rarities include Château Mouton-Rothschild 1948, and Château Lafite-Rothschild 1916, the oldest of several mature vintages from the Bordeaux first growths, which are joined by verticals from other big guns such as Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Tenuta dell’Ornellaia.

But the heart of a generally classical European list—at least in the opinion of the judges at the World’s Best Wine Lists awards—lies closer to home, and the fine collection of Austrian wines, which are also offered in multiple vintages, and which would surely make the best match for the traditional Tyrolean food served in each of the resort’s six restaurants.
