At the Turmbachhof in Appiano (built around 1190 and formerly the residence of the court clerk), our family has been involved for nine generations in the production and processing of foodstuffs, which originally came mainly from the cultivation of our own land. The wine, for example, has always been pressed from the own grapes. A mother of vinegar was made with particular care in porphyry, which gave the vinegar a special vitality. In 1966, Alfons Walcher built a distillery at the Turmbachhof, whose products today are distributed successfully in five continents. Committed to the tradition of superior taste and following their professional passion, in 2017 the Walcher brothers decided to set up their own gourmet food factory in Caldaro. The aim of the new branch is reviving old recipes with new technology and expressing the unique taste of South Tyrol‘s South. In order to achieve this goal, the family relies above all on organically grown raw materials and gentle processing avoiding any additives.
