Alto Adige Wines on The Grape Nation Podcast

Discover the region with host Sam Benrubi and three local wine producers

Sam Benrubi, host of The Grape Nation Podcast on Heritage Radio Network (USA), recently visited Alto Adige, where he explored vineyards, tasted wines, chatted with winemakers and absorbed the culture of the region firsthand.

The Grape Nation is a leading podcast in the wine space, meant to be a journey through the world's vineyards with "no snobbery." As Sam explains, his goal is to "guide the listener and help demystify all things wine in an approachable, funny, edgy, fast moving way." He adds, "The listener will have an immediate and better understanding of what to drink, how wine is made, wine trends, wine people, wine travel, wine regions, and all things wine."

During his travels through Alto Adige, Sam sat down with Martin Foradori Hofstätter of Tenuta J. Hofstätter, Oscar Lorandi of Cantina Girlan and Wolfgang Klotz of Cantina Tramin to discuss the magic of the region. From the history and people, to the geography and terroir, to the diverse array of wine styles to the winemaking process, this conversation takes a deep dive into all things Alto Adige, and highlights what makes the multi-faceted region so special.
