Responsible for overseeing Gruppo Mezzacorona, the Mezzacorona Societa Cooperativa Agricola was founded in 1904 as one of the first growers associations in Italy.  Currently occupying just under 6,500 acres at the foot of the Italian Dolomites, Gruppo Mezzacorona which produces all Mezzacorona products, combines both the traditional pergola system of growing with the more modern espalier system for enological operations.  While staying true to the natural balance of the grapes, Mezzacorona is equipped with the most modern enological equipment allowing them to produce upwards of 8 million gallons of wine annually. Wine production focuses on quality white production with special attention paid to their Pinot Grigios and Chardonnays, both grapes coming from the Valle dell’ Adige section of the vineyards.  Red production is centered on the Teroldego, followed closely by their Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, harvesting the grapes from the Piana Rotaliana and Lake Garda regions, respectively. Renowned for their consistent quality, Mezzacorona wines benefit from the unique landscape of the Trentino and Alto Adige regions of Italy.  For years Mezzacorona’s renowned winemakers have planted varietals in locations best suited for that varietal, being sure to takeg advantage of all the micro-climates the region has to offer.

Easy to drink and a classic example of a pinot grigio. Very well made and ready to drink. Nice straw yellow color that is very clear. Aroma of pears and pineapple very common to pinots. Medium bodied with a crisp taste and balanced acidity. Hints of pear and tropical fruit with a little bit of green apple. Very easy wine to drink that would not offend anyone.

Crisp, fresh nose of starchy fruits, with apple, pear and slight lychee. Some mineral. Nice acid on the palate. Bright citrus flavors and a nice minerality with flavors of lemon zest, hints of flowers like honeysuckle.

Refereshing and surprisingly rich, this Pinot Grigio from Wine Enthusiast Magazine's European Winery of the Year is a super value. Balanced with bright acidity because the grapes come from the cool climate vineyards in Northern Italy's Dolomite mountains, this perpetual Best Buy is a wine to enjoy.
