There’s so much to admire about Elisabetta Foradori and her amazing wines. The fact that she took over her family’s vineyards at the tender age of 19, for instance. Her steadfast commitment to biodynamic farming practice and the use of amphora. That she’s resurrected the native red grape known as teroldego, and cemented herself as one of the world’s most singular female winemakers.

Though the focus and acclaim seem to rest on her work with teroldego, the whites, both the pinot grigio and manzoni bianco (riesling x pinot blanc), are skillful points of reference for skin-contact winemaking. All the wines are a masterclass in texture, detail, nuance and seductive complexity.

Australia sees such a small allocation of these exquisite wines that to try even one is a privilege. To taste the entire collection — Manzoni Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Nosiola and showstopping Teroldegos — side-by-side with Elisabetta’s son and winemaker Theo and dynamite importer/owner of Brisbane’s 1889 Enoteca Dan Clark… well, that’s just once-in-a-lifetime really.

Make it a night to remember with a line-up of wines you won’t soon forget.

7 wines + a few surprises. 60 bucks. 20 spots. Don’t delay. Tickets here.
