The jewelin the vineyard

The young Tenuta Sanoner winery produces biodynamic wines which reflect the character and beauty of Tuscany.

Picture yourself walking through Tuscany. Narrow lanes transport you past box hedges, olive trees and cypresses. Small pockets of woodland alternate with undulating meadows, sometimes punctuated by gnarled oak trees jutting out of the hillside. And amongst it all are the vineyards. Mile after mile of vineyards. The strict geometry of the vines provides a striking contrast to the gently rolling hills in which they stand. It is a picture of exceptional beauty.

Tradition meets modernity

Timber is a key feature of the architecture at the ADLER resorts, particularly the ADLER Mountain Lodge, which was predominantly constructed from local trees.

At the ADLER Dolomiti in Ortisei, wood is present in the impressive beams above the hotel entrance and the enormous staircase dating from 1927, which was designed by the ‘star architect’ of the day, Clemens Holzmeister. This is a creation that is as powerful as it is elegant. The lobby of the neighbouring ADLER Balance is dominated by mysterious room partitions, every element of which is suggestive of the trees from which they came. The lobby and bar of the ADLER Thermae in Tuscany gleam with wall panelling inspired by the Siena Cathedral. There is a constant alternation between darkness and light that is simply bewitching. In the case of the Mountain Lodge, almost the entire building is constructed from this versatile material.

Adolf Vallazza

A conversation with sculptor Adolf Vallazza from Val Gardena, who created the ADLER Mountain Lodge totem

Ortisei, Strada Sotria 6, rear entrance. This is where Adolf Vallazza has worked for half a century. You enter up a set of narrow wooden stairs. What awaits at the top is unbelievable. There are some 900 works in Vallazza’s studio. They are tightly packed together, magical sculptures that are reminiscent of people, animals and mythical figures. Chairs like majestic thrones with rigid geometric forms. Patterns of leaves, flowers, trees, instruments, houses and stars are all recognisable.

And then there are the totems, of course. His  trademark. Totems everywhere. Thin and chunky, long and wide, often featuring jigsaw-style puzzles of interlinked wooden pieces, which sometimes appear like stairs, waves or hill chains.

Elly Sanoner

For over six decades, Elly Sanoner has epitomized the history and heart of ADLER. Even now, at 93 years of age, she still embodies everything that makes a quintessential hotelier: the love of the people, the passion for aesthetics and perfection, and the willingness to work hard for it.

Sunday, late morning. Day of departure. People, bags, suitcases. A tight crowd in front of the reception desk. A quick look over the bill. One last question about the traffic. Traffic jam on the highway? Will we make our flight? And somewhere amidst it all, there she is. Full of energy, grace, and warmth, she makes the rounds. It matters not to whom she turns, or to whom she carefully listens, or warmly shakes hands with; where she stands or walks the Grand Dame of the ADLER is always center stage.

ADLER Sommeliers

White wine with fish, red wine pairs better with meat and someone might enjoy a glass of dessert wine after dinner? But which wine suits to which dish? A general rule is that the wine should underline the flavor of the dish, it can soften it, but never overlap it. The bigger the choice of wines, the more difficult it is to choose the right one.
