They are true connoisseurs: the former Vorarlberg wine queen Alexandra Kreuz and her father Gerhand – a whisky expert. Fully committed to good taste, they have turned their passion into a profession. They love to travel around Austria, always looking for new delicacies for guests in their “Genuss am Gaumen” wine cellar and delicatessen in Götzis.
Their product range is anything but ordinary. When it comes to wines, Alexandra and Gerhard Kreutz can, for example, show you rare varieties from smaller and less well-known wine growers – and at the same time also offer special Austrian grape varieties, such as Furmint, Roter Veltliner or Sämling. “This is only possible thanks to our long-standing friendly relationship with our wine growers and producers,” confirms Alexandra. “This enables us to offer our guests fine and exquisite delicacies time and time again.”
The two connoisseurs are especially proud of their unique selection of single malts. With over 250 types of pure Scottish malts, their whisky selection is definitely one of the largest in the Vorarlberg region – and it is possible that it may even be the largest, states Alexandra. In addition to three whiskies under their own name, there is also the so-called Krinnawible: their own whisky-beer creation, which is brewed in the Gusswerk Brewery in Salzburg using peat smoked malt and then filled into Scottish oak casks – and then matured in Koblacher Kummenberg.
Genuss am Gaumen – It doesn’t end with wine and whisky. The large range of delicatessen products is therefore just a logical consequence. The products from select Austrian and Italian businesses range from chocolate, grappa and luxury brandies to oil, pesto, antipasti and noodles. This abundance of delicacies requires expert advice. A service that Alexandra and Gerhard are only too happy to offer – for example, with a whisky tasting downstairs in their 400 year old vaulted cellar.
