Teroldego is a native vine from which they obtain what is always considered the "prince" of Trentino wines, the Teroldego, from the name of the area where this grape expresses the most of its quality, the Piana Rotaliana. Strong and generous wine, from the compact and dense leaves a delicious bitter aftertaste. It will be the ideal companion to traditional dishes, such as pizzoccheri.

Gramona has formed an alliance with a unique grape variety: the Xarel-lo, the backbone of their cavas. The fifth generation of Gramona has also started making still wines and sweet wines which aim to express the character of their local terroir and delight lovers of good wine. True to their belief in respecting the environment, they manage their vineyards according to organic and biodynamic principles.
Elisabetta Foradori winery is situated in Trentino, where the mountain ranges make up the Dolomites, a World Heritage Site, are found between the Veneto, Trentino-Alto Adige and Friuli-Venezia Giulia regions and delineate a landscape of extraordinary beauty.
Foradori has been using biodynamic preparations in their vineyards while diligently working with great care in the cellar for over ten years; biodynamic farming is a “solar” agronomic operation: every action in the field tends to bring the Sun’s forces into the soil’s and plant’s vital processes. Our planetary system is truly a living organism where each planet’s sphere of influence penetrates the sunlight that permeates the Earth. The use of biodynamic preparations catalyses these forces. Their aim is to work in a closed-cycle farming organism, i.e. a self-sufficient one. The human/social, plant, animal and mineral components have synergetic roles and as such are given equal consideration in their day-to-day activities.
Foradori does not intervene in the winery; nothing is added, but they guide the wine while paying attention to its needs. Thus, the wine keeps an expressive spontaneity and bears the personality of its intense and live raw material. In this way, they bring into the wineglass the fragrance of the flowers from the mountain pastures, the minerality of the surrounding cliffs, the transparency of the mountain skies, the character of the people that live in these alpine valleys. Foradori aim to convey with each bottle the character of the land of Trentino. They harvest the grapes from vineyards covering 26 hectares - 80% of Teroldego, 15% of Manzoni Bianco and 5% of Nosiola - to produce an average of 160,000 bottles per year: 90,000 of Foradori, 20,000 of Granato, 20,000 of Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco, 8,000 of Fontanasanta Nosiola and 10,000 for each of the vineyard Sgarzon and Morei.
They are certified by ICEA and Demeter since 2009.
Campo Rotaliano is a well-demarcated geographical area, a sort of recess of the Adige Valley tucked between the mountains. Its history and origin are closely attached to the Noce River, which, over the centuries, has deposited huge quantities of limestone, granite and porphyry debris. This small plain, depending on the soil composition, distinguishes itself for its various micro zones bearing various names given by the local vintners. The blending of the different wines of these micro zones, with their various features, gives the “Foradori” wine.
