Sustainability At Gruppo Mezzacorona

By: Justine Teal Categories: Wines, Organic

The Mezzacorona Group operates in a context of high environmental value, in the heart of the Dolomites, a recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is here that their wines of quality and excellence, with Denomination of Controlled Origin (DOC) come from.

This is why the Group’s cultivation, production and transformation choices are so attentive to environmental sustainability at all stages of the production process, ‘from the land to the bottle’. Underlying these choices is a winemaking tradition that links technique to a natural environment favoured by different microclimates (Alpine, continental and Mediterranean) that allow the production of wines with different characteristics and organoleptic qualities.

This production philosophy, consolidated over time, has received a strong boost since 2017 with the achievement of the SQNPI Certification – System of National Quality Production, which offers the consumer the guarantee that the wines of the Mezzacorona Group contribute to the sustainability of the environment, to the protection of biodiversity and preserve the beauty of the landscape. A result obtained thanks to the Group’s investments, which for forty years has led the way, focusing on agronomic techniques and production processes that boast both efficient and cutting-edge production processes.

The Mezzacorona Group runs their sustainability program on their 4 cornerstones:

  1. Geographical Area of Production – Trentino, in the heart of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  2. Organisation Model – Vineyards cultivated in Trentino-Alto Adige and owned by the 1,457 members of the Mezzacorona S.c.a. cooperative.
  3. Climate Varieties – Alpine, Continental, and Mediterranean climates.
  4. Industrial Redevelopment and Landscaping – The “Wine Citadel,” one of the most important examples of industrial redevelopment. Conceived with bio-architectural and energy-efficient criteria.

Mezzacorona Group’s sustainability program runs from the land to the bottle. Over the last 40 years, the Group has works towards integrating nature and agriculture, and today they maintain many certifications for the health and safety of consumers including SQNPI Ministerial Certification, VIVA Ministerial Certification, EQUALITAS, SMETA, EMAS, and BIOLOGICO.
