Martin Foradori Hofstätter took over the winery from his parents in 1992. Together with his wife, he embarked on an era of modernisation and expansion of the winery. Built in 1998, the cellar tower has become an unobtrusive but nevertheless defining feature of the Tramin village alongside the imposing parish steeple tower. With great vision and entrepreneurial spirit, Martin Foradori Hofstätter increasingly expands the family estate. In 2014, he acquired the Weingut Dr. Fischer in Germany’s Mosel wine region. With this, he realised a long-cherished dream of having world-class Riesling sites at his disposal.
More recently, in 2017, he expanded to Trentino, the home of his ancestors. He purchased the Maso Michei farmstead in the Valle di Ronchi, a fascinating mountain area above the town of Ala. Today, Tenuta J. Hofstätter is one of Alto Adige’s largest family wine estates with unique, outstanding vineyards. Our family has always shaped the winery and we too, are equally shaped by the winery. Our three children grow up right in the middle of the busy everyday life of our family business. After training, studies, and gaining work experience, they want to help shape the future of our family business. We look forward to this joint challenge!
