Wine cellar

30 000 bottles of European wine

Wide steps lead down from the Alpsteinstube into the underground vaults, which are set into the hilltop of the Gupf. The extensive cellar complex was planned ahead to allow for a large capacity and was newly built in 1998.

Currently, around 30 000 bottles of European wine are stored at an optimum temperature and ventilation in our cellar, of which 80 percent are red wine.

Wine treasury

At the rear of the large bottle cellar, you will find the wine treasury. Only the best of the best are stored here. This precious collection is complemented by a vast stock of wines of the Domaine de la Romanée Conti.

Visitors to the treasury will marvel at the eight-metre-long wooden rendering of the alpine ascent of the cattle with its true-to-life figures – the largest of the world.
