Martin Foradori Hofstätter’s passion for Riesling extends beyond Italian borders into the German wine region Mosel. In 2014, he embraces the opportunity to revive the traditional winery Dr. Fischer. Here, Riesling grows in the finest vineyard sites. In 2022, Martin Foradori Hofstätter’s project expands further, encompassing the Rheinhessen area along the Rhine River.

Passion for Riesling
Wines from the steep slopes of the Mosel region
This concave curved vineyard slope surrounds the small wine village Ockfen like a natural amphitheatre. The estate has gained international recognition for its “Bockstein” wines. The steep south and southwest-facing plots of land consist primarily of grey slate. The soil and climate are ideal for Riesling wines that are well-structured, mineral-driven, and delicately fruity.
