The New York Times on Elisabetta Foradori, February 8, 2011:
She was barely more than a teenager in 1985 when she took over her family’s estate. Her father had died young, and the wine culture of the prime Teroldego zone, Campo Rotaliano, a wide plain in Trentino, had become largely industrial.
She took on the job of studying the history of the grape. Over the last 25 years she has worked relentlessly to restore its genetic diversity so that the wines would be deeper, purer and more complex.
"I myself have changed with the variety, and I find myself to be a different person, watching and listening to the land and to nature in a different way." - Elisabetta
