Vineyard Seehotel Kastanienbaum

"Life is much too short to drink bad wine" Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once said. 

That's why we do everything we can to offer our guests not only culinary highlights but also special wine enjoyment. And because we like to write stories from the beginning, the dream of our own vineyard became reality a few years ago. 

Come by and enjoy a glass of wine with a direct view of the vineyard, the lake and the surrounding mountains! The first vintage of Kastanienbaum wine will be ready to drink from spring 2021.

The project


In early July 2017, the first of our own vines were planted right outside our doors. Over a period of three years, the plants were grown and cared for by our gardener Philipp Vogel and Mathias Brunner from Brunner Weinmanufaktur.

The first harvest of the Solaris grapes took place in autumn 2020. The first vintage of the Kastanienbaum wine can be enjoyed in the lakeside restaurant as early as spring 2021.

The wine


For our white wine we have chosen the Solaris variety, which with its fruity character goes wonderfully with a stylish aperitif. But the grape variety alone is not enough for a high-quality wine. With Mathias Brunner from Brunner Weinmanufaktur in Hitzkirch, we not only have a renowned partner for vinification on board, but also one who shares our enthusiasm for a good drop of wine.

The vines


Thanks to a crowdfunding project and many supporters, the dream of owning our own vines could be realised.

Each of the 200 vines has found its own personal sponsor. That is why each of our vines is unique and bears its own name. We are proud to introduce you to our supporters on the signs.
