Elisabetta Foradori commands deep respect from her peers for her fervor for Trentino’s indegenous varieties. Thrust into the role of winemaker when she was only 19, Elisabetta played a key part in Teroldego’s renaissance. The Foradori estate, 28 hectares in size, was first purchased by her family in 1934. Under her guidance the vineyards were mostly replanted to guyot training and converted to organic farming. By 2009 the estate was fully biodynamic. In the cellar she dropped cultured yeasts and pulled back on the use of sulphur. Making a huge break from local convention, she introduced aging some wines in unlined Spanish clay tinajas (amphorae). Thanks to her impeccable farming practices, she was also able to introduce two single-site Teroldegos, Sgarzon and Morei. Her practices are a marked departure from the heavy handed methods of larger Trentino wineries. On top of creating incredibly compelling wines, Elisabetta has become a muse for Italy’s new generation of winemakers. Now joined at the winery by her sons Theo and Emilio, the future at Foradori looks very bright indeed.

"Fuoripista is a different kind of wine that takes an alternative route and has a different approach towards nature. This wine is the result of a collaboration between Foradori and Marco Devigili, biodynamic winemaker from Campo Rotaliano, and aims to express the true essence of this variety, widespread in the Trentino region. The wine spends more than 8 months on the skins inside Tinajas (amphorae) allowing the delicate character of Pinot Grigio to reveal." - Agricola Foradori
