Mühltalhof I Neufelden
With a great deal of courage and passion, Philip Rachinger and his father Helmut succeeded, in an almost playful manner, to make it to Gault Millau heaven. He learned from the best and his professional pathway has taken him to top restaurants, like the Steirereck (Pogusch & Vienna), CloveClub (London), Scatch (London). Back in Neufelden in upper Austria he made it a point of concentrating on his great passion – flavour.

Ötztal I Tirol I Austria
Gottfried Prantl has for 30 years been the head chef here with us in the 5-star hotel DAS CENTRAL in Sölden. After our Wein am Berg event last year, in April 2018, he took his well-deserved retirement. We thank Gottfried for his tireless commitment to DAS CENTRAL. We are delighted that we will once again be welcoming Gottfried at Wein am Berg 2019, as a guest chef on the Saturday evening and are already looking forward to his delicious culinary treats.
Cherasco I Piemont I Italy
At the age of 23 Francesco Oberto opened his first trattoria. A few years later, thanks to his passion for haute cuisine, he turned his trattoria into a gourmet restaurant and was awarded a Michelin star in 2016. Contemporary influences lend a touch of sophistication to traditional Piedmontese recipes, something which his guests have always cherished. The restaurant ‘DA FRANCESCO’ inspires with its modern blend of traditional, yet also uniquely delicious, dishes highlighted by carefully selecting the best regional produce.
