Regionalism and solidarity are reflected in Bregenzerwald’s local products. In establishing the “Gsiberger” brand, they achieved a level of recognition that extends far beyond the borders. They are constantly creating new types of fine liqueurs, syrups, delicious marmalades and exquisite pralines from regionally sourced honey and classic distillates.
Eating well in Bregenzerwald also means enjoying local specialities in addition to those from Austria and Italy. A broad selection of delicacies including wines, pastas and antipasti as well as 50 different vinegars and oils is available at Bentele Genuss in Alberschwende in addition to the two Culinara delicatessens located in Feldkirch and Bregenz.
Beekeeping & apiculture school
Beekeeping has been a Bentele passion for more than 30 years: Every day they are managing more than 100 bee colonies. It’s a job, but it also provides balance in this fast-paced modern world. In the apiculture school, it’s possible to complete a 2-year training course in practical beekeeping. All facilities and training rooms, the specially designed beekeeper terrace, and the roof terrace landscaped with a bee-friendly meadow have been set up especially for this course.
Interesting guided tours
Those keen to take a peak behind the scenes at the “Bentele Genuss” gourmet store should sign up for a guided tour through their new ecologically sound building. Across three floors and nearly 2000m², tour the brand-new distillery experience, beekeeping/apiculture school as well as the production and sales rooms. Visitors will receive insights into the making of distillates and discover information from the pros. Never fear: you will of course be invited to sample many fine spirits and culinary delicacies during a tour of the new company location.
