FORADORI

The Foradori winery was founded in 1939 in Mezzolombardo, near Trento. Elisabetta Foradori took over the reins of the company in 1984, after completing her studies at the wine school of S. Michele all'Adige. Driven by a strong passion and an unconditional love for her land, Elisabetta has set herself from the very beginning to recover what is one of the oldest autochthonous vine varieties in the area, the teroldego, trying to develop ways to enhance this grape, and therefore make it able to express the territory and its most sincere and genuine character. This mission went hand in hand with the search for natural viticulture and led, through mass selection, to the recognition of fifteen different teroldego biotypes, the undisputed queen grape of Campo Rotaliano. Elisabetta's result was to obtain a grape with mineral, floral and spicy characteristics all together. Since 2002 agriculture has been totally converted to biodynamics. The hectares of vines are about 28, they develop between the Campo Rotaliano and the hills of Cognola and are planted, as well as with teroldego, also with crossing manzoni and nosiola. The Foradori company is part of "I Dolomitici", a group of local winemakers united by the pioneering spirit of biodynamics, and since 2007 it has also been a member of VinNatur, which brings together over 170 natural winemakers from nine different countries. We find labels that respond to the names of "Morei", "Sgarzon", "Granato", "Fontanasanta" and "Fuoripista". Bottles in which all the best essence of the Trentino area is contained, daughters of what is the most deep knowledge thanks to which we have come to grasp all the subtle differences present in nature, at the same time reaching the maximum preservation of the character of the fruit and the identity of the place of origin.
