You could say a “trident of bliss” has emerged from the historic building of the Hofmeisterei after careful renovation: an early Gothic jewel with Baroque opulence and more than 700 years of history. One. Two tenants who have already proven they know how to serve sophisticated country inn cuisine. Two. And a family of owners who have been making legendary wines in one of Austria’s most beautiful cultural landscapes for 5 generations. Three. With these ingredients, Hofmeisterei Hirtzberger looks set to become a new culinary landmark in the Wachau. But it is also an informal place to meet, where you can chat standing at the bar with a glass of wine. The culinary delights are provided by the new tenants – Hartmuth Rameder as front-of-house (most recently “Steirereck” and “Nigl”) and Erwin Windhaber as chef (most recently “Kloster Und” and “Nigl”). They serve a natural, regional cuisine in fine country inn style. The seasonal dishes are perfectly complemented by an extensive wine list, not only Hirtzberger with some 100 offerings including the flagships of the Wachau but also interesting wines from international cellars.
