This event occurred in the past

The J. Hofstätter estate was established in 1907 by the Foradori Hofstätter family in Alpine foothills of the Alto Adige region of northern Italy, bordering Switzerland and Austria. A range of different grape varieties is grown here including the demanding gewürztraminer, the sensitive but rewarding pinot nero (pinot noir) and pinot bianco.

Although you don't need any particular wines to enjoy the event, here are a list of wines that Martin and Sarah will discuss, we encourage you to grab a bottle (or three!) and taste along with them.

Now one of our most popular offerings, these events are designed to give members an insight into wineries by hearing from those on the ground. Often there will be wines to compliment the event, though buying these wines is not compulsory to attend or enjoy the event, and these sessions can be watched with a cup of tea if you would prefer!
