Wine cellar - Hotel Sonnalp

Hotel with wine cellar & cocktail bar in Obereggen

The fifth element

Every wine has a unique story. A single sip takes you on an unforgettable journey through space and time and impresses you with its diverse aromas and flavours. A veritable treasure trove of wines awaits you in our hotel with wine cellar in South Tyrol: around 400 to 500labels, all hand-picked by host & sommelier David Weissensteiner.

The wine connoisseur: a portrait

The world of fine wines fascinates many, but him in particular. Host & sommelier David took an interest in the different grape varieties, labels and classifications from an early age. Curiosity grew, interest became passion. Flowery Sauvignons, elegant Pinot Noirs and Italian wines from Piedmont, such as Nebbiolo and Barbera, are among his favourite wines. He is particularly fond of wines with an original character and a special terroir. But even after 20 years of tasting and studying wines, he has by no means tasted it all. The world of wine is diverse, and there are always new surprises and treats that David is just waiting to introduce you to.

“Wine is a novel that the winemaker writes with the grapes.”

Thomas Häntsch

Wine tasting

Wine tasting & cellar aperitif

Set off on a journey of discovery with David: selected wines are tasted at the weekly wine tastings (registration required), and accompanied by small appetisers from the Sonnalp kitchen. While you enjoy, David tells you stories from the world of wine.
By the way! Small tip: if he has time, ask for the “Kelleraperitif”.


Speak with David to register for tastings or at the reception.
