Welcome to formartis in "Galerie des Wahnsinns". 

In a special atmosphere you will find a wine bar of a special kind. At formartis you will find unusual, international wines, which we import, sell and taste.

Here you can get delicacies like high quality olive oils, balsamico from Modena, truffle products, pasta and much more. Dessert wines, liqueurs, Franciacorta, Prosecco and Champagne complete the offer.

The tables at which we sit we build ourselves and here we focus on sustainability. The wood comes from the local forest in the Angertal directly in front of our door. After Kyrill and the storm Ela, fallen trees were processed into heavy table tops and combined with different bases made of stainless steel, black steel or wooden legs. For our customers we make special designs according to their wishes and measurements.

With the tables came the decorations to formartis. From vases and wine buckets, candles and flower pots to unusual found objects, you will find gift ideas and decorations for your friends and your home.

Cozy wine tastings take place in large and small circles, where we always present interesting combinations of food and wine or chocolate and wine.

formartis offers a space for companies and individuals with small wine tours, films and photos of the wineries and most of the time the winemakers, such as Giovanni Frascolla of "Tua Rita" and "PoggioargentierA", or Silvia and Rudi Banci of "Canto alla Moraia" are there themselves. But also wineries with not so famous names receive at formartis the attention that corresponds to the excellent quality of their products.

At wine tastings and events such as "Prowein goes City," formartis introduces small, sometimes unknown wineries that focus on extremely high quality and organic cultivation rather than mass or the usual mainstream. We maintain very intensive, personal contact with our Italian wineries and delicatessen suppliers, whom we regularly visit on site. We honor their work by presenting them with a stage in our 200 m² event hall and by being a bridge for our suppliers to the gastronomy and the end consumer.

Every year we bring new ideas, wines, innovations and products from the Prowein trade fair in Düsseldorf and from Vinitaly in Verona.

On Friday or Saturday, Peter Maria Schäfer conjures up various small delicacies in the kitchen. Sometimes it can be eight courses with the matching wines from his wine cellar. Companies and private individuals are welcome to contact formartis for such an event.

Because as Goethe once said. "Life is too short to drink bad wine" and we certainly don't want that. In this sense Salute!
