Gruppo Mezzacorona is located in Trento’s Piana Rotaliana, near the town of Mezzocorona. The Group includes Cantine Mezzacorona, the parent company, Cantine Rotari, which produces Trento DOC Metodo Classico sparkling wines, and Feudo Arancio, based in Sambuca di Sicilia.
Founded in 1904, Gruppo Mezzacorona boasts 1,600 members and 2,800 hectares of vineyards in Trentino-Alto Adige’s finest grape-growing areas.
Mezzacorona is the largest Italian producer of Teroldego Rotaliano and produced the very first bottle of this wine back in 1971. It is also the foremost Italian producer of Lagrein, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer.
Mezzacorona agronomists contributed to the first experiments and to the spread of the practice of sexual confusion, which is now widely used in integrated pest management to eradicate insects harmful to vines without the use of pesticides.
The winery’s current headquarters, the “Cittadella del Vino”, was completed in August 2004 to a design by architect Alberto Cecchetto. The design of its “wave” roof echoes the succession of vineyards cultivated with pergolas.
Wine Spectator has listed Mezzacorona as one of Italy’s 100 best wineries.
