Sommelier: Michael Bauer
Thorsten Probost is a visionary of cuisine that is healthy, yet soars to the highest gourmet reaches. In his pool of ingredients, it is herbs, above all, whether plucked wild or locally grown, with their many beneficial effects, that play a key role. Along with top regional products ranging from vegetables to fish and beef from the family-own farm, they form the foundation for inspired menu creations. Discerning diners who are open to surprises and love to discover the clear, expressive taste of balanced, very puristically conceived combinations, can look forward to impressions that are both sensual and rejuvenating!
In their companion wines, the dedicated sommelier team is able to draw upon the riches of one of the best wine cellars of the Arlberg. There is (almost) nothing you cannot find, or so you might feel when faced with such a breadth of global wines and depth of vintages. Open wines are not just poured from large bottles, but also from matured vintages, while surprises should never be ruled out. The health focus of this establishment has also found a footing in the beverage selection: including herbal essences, homemade juniper syrup with tonic, fruit juices from Vorarlberg and teas, perfectly attuned to the menu.
The sunny location on the Oberlech plateau at 1700 m above sea level is one of the many advantages of the Burg Vital Resort. The comfortable rooms and suites of the five chalets, each connected by means of an underground walkway, make this 5-star hotel a place of restful tranquillity. The breakfast is one of the best imaginable, featuring a bounty of homemade specialities – from exceptional breads to sugar-free jams. The lunch offered out on the sun terrace and guest dinner menu also reflect a wholesomeness of culinary expression.
Spacious spa area on 3 levels with saltwater pool; health packages.
Thorsten Probost epitomizes the vitality-orientated philosophy of the hotel and is actively involved as a product developer. In cooperation with regional suppliers, including dairy, meat and vegetable farmers from Vorarlberg and Tyrol, the outstanding, nutritious quality of basic ingredients is assured. The close cooperation with Fischteich Zug makes it possible to offer fresh freshwater fish all season long. Out on herb hikes with your host, you can look forward to seeing the mountain world in a whole new way.
