My 2015 wine harvest experience at Azienda Agricola Elisabetta Foradori was a dream come true, Elisabetta Foradori is one of the most respected Italian winemakers known for her honest and gregarious approach to wine. She is a gracious leader, an advocate who follows a holistic form of biodynamic farming and winemaking. As an aspiring winemaker, it made sense for me to travel to Trentino-Alto Adige to learn from Elisabetta's philosophy and wine principles.
During that year, I was part of working with one of Foradori's most recent projects, the Fuoripista Pinot Grigio - Fuoripista means "off-track". The wine is aged in anfora clay for 8 months, The style is called "RAMATO" which is an orange wine style for making Pinot Grigio , lasting a longer maceration on skins, it's color is naturally pink (often mistaken as rosé) this style of wine is truly special and unique known in Northern Italy.
I am excited to announce that we have in stock some of the exclusive wines made by Foradori, including the 2015 Teroldego which is Foradori's entry-level wine and 2015 Granato, an elegant expression of Teroldego aged in large oak foudres for 15-18 months , along the Fouripista Pinot Grigio 2016.
It was an honor to form part of the Foradori 2015 wine team. I hand-harvested in one of the most breathtaking landscapes that I ever witnessed...The Dolomites - a mountain range located in the region of Northern Italy (an UNESCO World Heritage Site), fostering fantastic climatic conditions that are ideal for grape growing, yielding grapes that produce an aromatic and delicate (lighter to medium) style of both white and red wines as the result.
