About The Wine

Elisabetta Foradori is a trailblazing organic wine grower from the town of Trentino in Mezzolambardo.

Her first vintage was in 1984, with her conversion to biodynamics beginning in 2002. By 2007 she was certified and now is considered one of the most forward thinking wine growers in Italy with a huge international profile. Her wines are made with a natural sensibility. The gentle use of clay amphora and inert vessels for ferments and maturation sees her mainline a sense of place from grape to glass.

Foradori works with four local varieties: Teroldego, Pinot Grigio, Nosiola and Manzoni Bianco. The latter on full display here.

The Manzoni Bianco variety is a genetic cross between Riesling and Pinot Blanc. It sees a small amount of skin contact on its way to bottle. The wine in the glass is beautifully aromatic, crisp yet textural. It's a charming, idiosyncratic white that you'll want to sit and sniff on all afternoon.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The knowledge of the rhythms and cycles of nature has been perfected over time with observation: every season brings us new things, every day teaches and makes us understand. We have learned to listen to grasp the subtle differences existing in nature, we have learned to preserve the sincerity of the character of the grape in the expression of its place of origin.

Our agricultural gestures rise to creativity: we have the task and the privilege of getting up every morning and being free to work according to the message that the earth wants to give us at that moment.

We work in the mountains mainly cultivating Teroldego and Pinot Grigio in the alluvial soils of Campo Rotaliano, Nosiola and Manzoni Bianco on the clayey-calcareous hills of Cognola.

Foradori has been certified as a Demeter and ICEA since 2009.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
