A short history The homestead dates back to the year 1366
when the Princely Family von Liechtenstein ordered the construction of
the ‘Wassererhof‘ (water mansion). The nearby wellspring promised
fertility and wealth.
In 1996 the father of the twins Andreas and Christoph Mock bought
the run-down homestead that was not in use any more and urgently needed
renovation. The architect Syliva Hafner Polzhofer from Terlan planned the
redevelopment and by working with passion and devotion. So the old ruins
could be renovated within two years.
The masion called Wassererhof –
In 2013 a new cellar was built and since then the homestead has become
an amazing ensemble of buildings emitting a sense of gentleness supported
by an expressive architecture. The residential house offers enough space for
both of the brothers and the ‘Buschenschank ‘(a traditional seasonal farm inn).
Christoph is the farmer, Andreas the cook. The two brothers cooperate,
helping each other with solidarity and this is the guarantee of their success.
Andreas Mock He is a qualified bookkeeper, but his passion is
cooking. At first cooking was his hobby, but it has become his passion.
A good cuisine begins with high-quality ingredients, fresh and seasonal. This
is Andrea’s philosophy and represents his attitude towards the art of cooking.
In numerous training courses he was encouraged in his opinion.
The traditional cuisine is their top priority. Fresh and homemade
and surprisingly refined: soups in all variations, dumblings of all kinds ranging from
beetroot to leek and Tyrolean grey cheese, Schlutzkrapfen (ravioli) filled in different
ways and barley ristotto.
Törggelen is an old South Tyrolean tradition to celebrate the harvest and the new wine
and Törggelen means enjoying food and drink. A typical speciality is the meat platter that
consists of local homemade sausages, ribs, ham with sauerkraut (pickled cabbage) and
on top of it ‘Kartoffelplattln’ some kind of hash browns ideally served with a glass of
red wine Magdalener. In spring, usually starting in March, the menu is tuned to the season
like asparagus specialities, typical Easter ham with horse radish. Of course, these dishes
go with South Tyrolean Sauvignon from the winery ‘Wasserhof’.
