The wine tavern in the 4 stars Superior hotel Emmy at the foot of the Sciliar is a meeting place loved by connoisseurs of wine, as well as from simple wine lovers from around the world

Fiè allo Sciliar is a wine region. The winemakers of the lower areas, as Novale of Fiè and Aica di Sotto, export wines from their cellars. Many of the "Novale" quality wines, have been awarded nationally and internationally, while the "Oachner" wines, a rustic variant our local wines, fit perfectly for the "Törggelen" or the South Tyrolean snacks.

The wine tavern Emmy, is also dedicated to the Tyrolean innkeepers. The landlord has always played an important role in the holiday region South Tyrol: the taverns were places of news exchange, meeting places for traders and celebrations, a gathering place, accommodation for travelers, coachmen and horses, and also served as a post office. The Austrian author Johann Anton Gross-Hoffinger wrote in a chapter about the Tyrolean uprising of 1809 on hosts and Andreas Hofer, who was also a restaurateur:

"The divine right of South Tyrolean innkeepers to send away guests", can be seen as a root cause of the battle of Hofer:

"And what's going emperor?" asked Andreas Hofer, "as a great innkeeper! My father was a landlord, my grandfather was host - so all over the country. And the father said to his son, be fair and keep discipline and honor at home. And this is a holy recommendation, like that of kings and emperors. And I tell you, when the Tyrolean innkeeper loses in his territory, so the emperor will not react. It is God's representative on earth. The innkeepers, however, are the representatives of the emperor!"

This was for the author, the moral task of the South Tyrolean innkeepers: dismiss intrusive and unwanted guests from their land.

But Hofer lost.

We still want to drink to the history, so choose from our wine list - Prosit und Gesundheit, as we say here…

Our advice:
Zweigelt from the Bessererhof in Novale di Fiè, aging in small oak barrels gives as a results a red wine with peculiar characteristics called "Roan".
The selected wine “Praesulis", a South Tyrolean Sauvignon of the Gumphof always in Novale of Fiè, is distinguished by notes of complexity, spice, length and minerals.
