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 »

  • 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

  • Hofstätter Lagrein Dunkel Trentino/Alto Adige 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly smoky on the nose and gently oaky with a backdrop of gently leafy tones to the sweet red currant fruit. On the palate this exhibits a firm bed of fine grained tannins. The mouthfeel is a bit lean and quite focused with mineral and soil driven flavors that lead to a slightly meaty, cherry skin finish. This is a bit small and quite jewel l... Read More

  • J. Hofstätter Lagrein Alto Adige Südtirol Steinraffler 1999

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was full of dark red fruits, fall leaves, caramel, musk and damp earth. It was hard to take my nose from this glass as it continued to evolve over the course of the meal. On the palate it was soft and elegant while showing black cherry, plum and extra dark chocolate. All of this was carried gracefully by this wine's brisk acidity, wh... Read More

  • Hofstatter Pinot Noir Mezcan 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This just smells lovely, full of forest floor, tea and earth notes that gently frame the fruit. In the mouth it's bright and linear with a soft, fleshy core of red fruits that gain complexity on the finish with notes of incense stems and tree bark. There is great freshness here and while it may be a touch lean at this stage it remains very engag... Read More

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

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted vintage 2001 (in Summer 2008). One of the best Italian Gewurtztraminers. Very well structured. Luscious palate; dense and long. Still has a little bit of acidity that makes it very drinkable.Age at least six years. Read More
