Taking stock of the past ten years I can confidently assert that the exceptional character of our local vineyards and grape varieties is reflected in our wines more than ever. South Tyrol’s best-known vines are cultivated in the Hofstätter wine estate. We even enjoy the unique privilege of owning vineyards in the finest sites on both sides of the Adige River in southern South Tyrol. However, it is precisely the work in the vineyards which I find the most challenging: decades of monoculture have exhausted the soils, sapped them of their vigour, the vigour which the grapevine needs to stay healthy and unfold its vitality to the full. And today the vine needs vital force more than ever before to withstand the increasingly extreme weather conditions. The word ‘terroir’ is often bandied about, as if it referred to an established factor, while in reality it is subject to the very same fluctuations that the far-sighted winegrower is confronted with in his daily work. He needs to recognise the elementary Read more »

  • J Hofstatter Steinraffler Riserva Lagrein Alto Adige DOC 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Leather and a bit animal on the nose with sweet red pastille fruit and floral aromas that are fairly intense. This is gamy with perhaps a hint of brett on the nose. Sweetly-fruited and polished in the mouth with a weightlessness to the intensity of the palate. Filled with dark fruit and featuring fudge accents, light spiciness and very well inte... Read More

  • Hoftatter Meczan Pinot Nero 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed under ripe peach, hints of citrus and spring floral notes. On the palate, it was fresh and vibrant with a hint of sweetness and flavors of green apple, sweet spice and inner floral notes. The refreshing finish had a spritz of citrus and remained enjoyable throughout. Read More

  • Now I feel at home, and not just because Italian wines are where my heart is, but also because you can put together a giant list of great Italian wines at attractive prices. This issue of Wine Spectator focused on the Northeast of the country and Tuscany, so there was a lot to choose from! I’ve narrowed down the list to nine wines, though three ... Read More

    Wine review by luca chevalier


  • Kolbenhofer D.o.c. Hofstätter Josef Trocken Südtirol Italien 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Light and slightly peachy on the nose with a sweet apple underlay and nice hints of river stones. A touch sweetly fruited on entry with creamy, fairly apple core of fruit. A bit simple, if fresh, and easy to drink. 86pts Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris. We’ve talked about the wines before and in all honesty it can get boring to talk about Pint Gris, unless you shake things up a bit.Most of us instinctively turn toward Italy to get our Grigio fix, a reaction that has been beaten into us through incessant advertising and media placements. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not ... Read More
