At 3,343m the Dolomitic Alps are a mountain range located in northeastern Italy, near the Mezzacorona region. In winter, temperatures fall below freezing, and snowfall is ample. Spring returns with warmer weather and longer days, but also with rain.
The ice gradually melts and results in beautiful green valleys and pastures overflowing with wildflowers! The water reaches Piana Rotaliana, in the Mezzacorona region, bringing with it essential minerals that will sit in the soil, and serve as nutrients to the cultivation of grapes.
In there, 1600 families live, cultivating the vineyards. Every August, harvest season begins and each family will bring together their produce to make Mezzacorona’s wines. But cultivating in the region also means needing to meet quality standards, and for that reason every family works together to reach the quality desired. In fact, for 117 years it has been this way.
The result is 100% single varietal wines characterized by all the vivid elegance, freshness, purity and crispiness typical of the Italian Dolomites.
Mezzacorona Maso di Mezzo
This village, once called “Mezzo” is now Mezzocorona: a village that has always been protected by a mountain of dolomite rock which rises majestically above the village.
A “Maso” was the traditional house in the village of Mezzo: a rural dwelling built in the Middle Ages, with its own cellar and storage room, with adjoining gardens, vineyards, and woods.
Making wine in a Maso di Mezzo was a natural and daily activity, but one of great importance, of religious value and also of social liberation.
