At the court of Stefan Nothdurfter stands "Giggus". As Stefan explains with a friendly laugh, this is the Rätische name for schnapps and means "hot water". He proudly refers to the special flair of the area and the historical roots of agriculture. His farm dates back to the 16th century. Four generations live under one roof: "We pass on traditional knowledge and our values!"
Christoph Kössler explains: “Our family has owned the house for generations. It is very lively here, because it is a residential building and not a museum. ”He invites you to tastings in the beautiful Zirbenstube. Next door, in the building made of stream stone walls and dark-tanned wooden walls, he has an exhibition room, the copper “small” distillery and a cozy tasting corner.
The wonderful sunny plateau above Landeck is a real insider tip for nice and long walks and hikes. Starting in Grins, with its beautiful and impressive Gothic church and the medicinal water, the pleasure hike goes through the village of Grins and then across the fields to Stanz. The route leads either along the dirt road or a little higher through the forest along the irrigation channel. Accompanied by a view of the wonderful Tyrolean mountains, the paths lead to Stanz, the birthplace of the famous Baroque master builder Jakob Prandtauer and the home of the famous Stanzer Zwetschke. It thrives here particularly well, matures fully and develops full, spicy and sweet aromas. Here the route ends in one of the great distilleries. With almost 500 inhabitants, Stanz has 56 distilleries in which plums are processed into fine distillates, fruit liqueurs, jams, chutney and plum ketchup. The distillers look forward to a visit and are happy to invite you to guided tastings.
