The love for the mountains is a tradition in Ivan Marzola's family: it is a precious heritage that the father passed on to his children. This passion was probably also the reason why the family, who actually came from Grado, settled in Val Gardena and took over the famous Comici hut in Val Gardena. And it was also this fascination for the mountains - the life-affirming, deep connection to nature, which has not left him since childhood and has always given him many breathtaking moments - that led Ivan to Kitzbühel. There, by chance, he met someone who shared exactly this enthusiasm with him, which immediately made the two of them feel connected in spirit: Christian Harisch.
Over a good glass of wine - as is customary in Tyrol - Ivan and Christian then decided to work together to create a new gastronomy concept in Sonnbühel. Christian was immediately enthusiastic about the innovative gastronomy concept that had grown out of the Marzolas' family business and had made the Comici Hut a true phenomenon in South Tyrol. Their vision was to bring the successful concept of the Comici Hut to Tyrol and to merge it there with the long tradition and the exquisite ambience of the legendary Sonnbühel to create a unique project.
