Tenuta J. Hofstätter
Founded by Joseph Hofstätter nearly 100 years ago, the J Hofstätter estate is situated in the southern part of the South Tyrol and produces some of the finest Pinot Noirs, Gewürztraminers and Lagreins in Italy. The estate stretches to the western slopes of the Adige Valley near Mazon and enjoys perfect conditions for Pinot Noir. This area is now recognized as one of the few places worldwide, outside France, capable of producing this great, yet difficult Burgundian red. The estate also comprises eight hectares of vineyard on the hillside above Tramin, birthplace of Gewürztraminer. Today, the winery is run by Joseph’s great nephew, Martin Foradori-Hofstätter who passionately maintains a delicate balance between tradition and innovation in the vineyards and at the winery, producing wines that are both magnificent and authentic.
