Der Weinmesser is a fantastic small full service hotel. The hotel is way up in the hillside overlooking Scena and the valley. The rooms we had were large with balconies and views over the valley, city and mountains, just wonderful! Ask for a room overlooking the valley and ask to have a look at it.
This part of Italy is bordering Austria and Switzerland and has been fought over many times, sort of like the Alsace wine region in France. Their main language here is German, with Italian second. Most signs are in German. I found that people love to try out their English and are very helpful. I was told that most tourists here are from Austria, Germany and Switzerland so they do not get a chance to speak much English.
The rooms also included breakfast and dinner in the dining room. So much good food. The dinner you have to order at breakfast, you usually have a choice of two main dishes. Their wine selection is fantastic. You will get assigned a table and you will use this for every meal.
The hotel sits on the old family vineyard. The word "Weinmesser" goes back a long time to when the local wines were checked for quality by the Weinmesser. Like quality control.
The hotel has three different types of saunas a pool and you can get a massage if you so care. All is very clean. Great hiking trails through the orchards. The fruit tree blossom is in April.
The staff is super friendly and again, love to speak some English when they can.
The only draw back I can see is that the parking is a bit tight, but that is common in Europe.
