Mezzacorona is an exceptionally well-run and well-equipped co-operative of some 1500 growers, with 2,600 hectares of Trentino vines, 70% of which are DOCG.
Based at the foot of the Italian Dolomites, which tower protectively over the vineyards, the vines run on trellises as far as Lake Garda, and the many surrounding lakes and rivers provide fresh, cleansing breezes. The variety of climates means that Mezzacorona can choose optimum sites for the many different grape varieties they grow.
These are used to produce a range of characterful, single-varietal wines – as well as pinot grigio, and international varieties like chardonnay and merlot, they also make exemplary teroldego and marzemino. They also use their excellent facilities to bottle wine from Feudi Arancio in south-west Sicily.
