My wife and I stayed in "Das Kleine Haus" or the little house on the property. The house was built in 1836, originally built as a smoke house. We really enjoyed how small and cozy the house was. We also enjoyed the events we attended while staying at the property.
On Friday night we attended the rendezvous in the wine cellar where we sampled several different port wines with different chocolate. I highly recommend this event for everyone, even those non-wine drinkers like me. Adrian did an excellent job of pairing the wine and chocolate and explaining how and why each wine is paired.
On Saturday night we attended dinner at the house. Kate's pork medallions were an experience all by itself. The food was excellent as well as the wine pairings with each of the four courses.
Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday were delicious. I highly recommend staying at Alpenhorn Gasthaus.
