Foradori was founded in 1901 Northern Italy’s Alto Adige region. In
1984 Elisabetta Foradori, after having completed her enological
studies, completed her first vintage at her family estate. She is
widely credited with helping revive the popularity and quality of the
Teroldego grape. In 2002 the estate began it’s conversion to biodynamic
farming and received Demeter status in 2009. Wine has been made on the
farm since the 1930’s, and from 1984, has been under Elisabetta’s
guidance. Today, whilst Elisabetta has focused her attention to their
cheese production, the 30ha estate is now lead by her children, Emilio,
Theo and Myrtha, who have further progressed the farm’s narrative and
focus, and brought a new energy and dynamism into the fold since 2013.
Emilio and Theo look after the winemaking and marketing, whilst Myrtha
focuses on the farming.
Manzoni Bianco is a 1930’s cross of Riesling and Pinot Bianco. This is
organically and biodynamicaly farmed and hand harvested before
fermentation on the skins in cement tanks, followed by 12 months of
aging in acacia casks. One pf Italy’s leading biodynamic producers and
real trailblazers the wines are not be missed.
