Gerstl's r30 guarantee

Locally-sourced, fresh, healthy – responsible indulgence at DAS GERSTL Alpine Retreat

Locally sourced, full of flavour, and brought fresh to your table. The most authentic produce from as close by as possible.
We’ve been striving for a long time now to find the best locally produced goods and the most aromatic foods that have genuinely been produced and manufactured in our most immediate surroundings.
South Tyrolean delights have always been important to us at DAS GERSTL Alpine Retreat, but our  guarantee is our way of ensuring that our guests are among the most environmentally responsible guests!

 Gerstl’s r30 Guarantee

We, your hosts the Gerstl family, have introduced a real “At Home Guarantee” with the R30 seal. A product with this seal guarantees that it has been produced within a range of no more than 30 km. Our aim is to demonstrate our commitment to locally sourced produce and to seasonality!

Lukas Gerstl, together with his team in the kitchen, is responsible for selecting the finest suppliers from the region. It is a key concern for all of the Gerstl family that by selecting suppliers from our area in the most meticulous and environmentally-aware manner, we are also able to support the farmers and wider agricultural community in our valley. The shorter transportation routes also help protect the environment. All regional produce at Das Gerstl Alpine Retreat is labelled with the so that our guests can immediately recognise that it is locally-sourced.

A few of our products bearing the r30 seal

The “At Home Guarantee” at our Venosta SPA

At Das Gerstl, the R30 guarantee doesn’t stop with our culinary delights, but extends to the wellness treatments on offer in our Venosta SPA, which are also adorned with the seal in our SPA brochures.

Our r30 producers & partners

Kuntrawant Coffee

The word “Kuntrawant” derives from the Italian noun “contrabbando”, which means “smuggling”. This reference is no coincidence, since a lot of coffee was smuggled from the Grisons to the Vinschgau Valley until the 1970s. Josef Gander from Prad am Stilfserjoch continues this extraordinary history of the coffee trade in the Vinschgau and roasts "smuggler's coffee" as a matter of passion. Taste his coffee at our hotel bar.


Genuss Gruber

The "Genuss-Gruber" is already in its 2nd generation of producing and selling bacon, salami and other South Tyrolean specialities, which you will also find in our "Stone cellar".


Fisolgut Hof

Have you already tasted our spicy and crunchy bread? It is homemade and comes from the Fisolgut-Hof in Schlanders!



The herbs come from the Edelweiss-kingdom of the Stilfserjoch National Park. Many Alpine herbs are reaped and refined with passion. Enjoy a cup of original Vinschger tea in our spa, in our hotel bar or in your room!



Enjoy high-percentage tipples of pleasure, produced with much love and patience in the family distillery in Laas.



A passionate love of wine is what gives rise to passionate wine here.



Apple juice tastes naturally sweet, is refreshing and rich in vitamins and minerals.
And what's even better: every sip you enjoy is freshly pressed in Schluderns, a short distance from DAS GERSTL Alpine Retreat!


Are you wondering where our delicious dried fruit gets its intense flavour? It is produced in Laas at 900 m above sea level!



Continuing along the sunny side of the Vinschgau Valley, the Marinushof's highly limited area is perfectly suited for growing grapes. The vineyards found there are the ideal location for Burgundy varieties – see for yourself!



The Angerer bakery only uses ingredients from the region to make its bread. Most of the grain is home-grown or procured from local arable farmers.



You will find specialities from the confectionery and handmade special breads made according to our own recipes using natural basic ingredients. Give it a try!


The Wagyu cattle from Langtaufers are fed solely on hay and grow very slowly; meat connoisseurs hold them in high esteem for their fine marbling and unrivalled meat flavour!

Relax and enjoy at best conditions
