About Agricola Foradori
Nestled high in the idyllic Italian Dolomites, you will find Agricola Foradori. Here, the cultural landscape is a melting pot of German custom and Italian tradition. Traditionally, the industry here has always been dominated by big cooperatives, which has naturally dictated a strong sway towards conventional agriculture. Foradori, however, have long been a bastion of biodynamic farming, and since 2009 have been Demeter certified.
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, and has created a vegetable and herb growing programme that is largely grown under the pergolas at their Mezzolombardo vineyard.
According to Theo, in today’s climate, it is not enough to only produce wine. “To create a young, energetic team, you need to create an environment where they can take an interest in things beyond wine. If we want to be relevant in 20 years time, we need to create an ecosystem that can incubate ideas and creativity.”
Please note tickets are transferable but not refundable.
