AZIENDA AGRICOLA FORADORI

Foradori family

Agricola Foradori was established in 1901 and Elisabetta Foradori’s father Roberto began working in the winery in 1960. After her fathers passing, a young Elisabetta took over the estate in 1985 and began to replant her vineyards using massale selection – not because of any overriding grand plan – but because it felt right.

It is largely thanks to these efforts by Elisabetta, her husband Rainer Zierock and a few other dedicated growers in the Mezzolombardo area of Trentino – Alto Adige that the Teroldego grape has survived. The winery was certified by ICEA and Demeter in 2009 and farmed biodynamically since 2002.

At the helm today, a fourth generation of winemakers oversee the smooth operation of Foradori’s activities – Elisabetta and Rainer’s children, Emilio, Theo and Myrtha Zierock continue in their footsteps supported constantly by Elisabetta.

Philosopher-winemaker Emilio manages wine production, while political journalist Theo oversees the winery’s business and commerce. Market gardener Myrtha takes care of Foradori’s farming and gradual expansion.

The grapes are harvested from vineyards covering 28 hectares – 70% of Teroldego, 20% of Manzoni Bianco, 5% of Nosiola and 5% of Pinot Grigio – to produce an average of 160,000 bottles per year: 50,000 of Foradori, 20,000 of Granato, 25,000 of Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco, 10,000 of Fontanasanta Nosiola, 10,000 of Fuoripista Pinot Grigio and 12,000 for each of vineyards of Sgarzon and Morei and 25,000 bottles of Lezèr.
