Foradori Tasting this weekend

Continuing our Italian tour for September, this weekend we will be tasting wine from one of our favourite producers, Foradori. Elisabetta makes just 3 wines - 2 reds and a white. The reds are made from Teroldego Rotaliano, a variety rarely seen outside its home area of Trentino. Normally, this variety makes pretty shoddy wine, not helped by the large yields common in the area. Foradori wines are a world apart, however. They have a richness, complexity and balance that makes these some of the best reds from Northern Italy. The white is a blend of Sauvignon and local variety Incrocio Manzoni - delicious and unusual as well. Worth calling in to try.

We will also have a couple of wines from St. Michael Eppan - the Riesling Montiggl and the Pinot Bianco. These wines from Alto Adige are renowned for their freshness, purity of fruit and clean flavours.

Hope you can come along, tasting runs Friday - Sunday,
