Just today, we visited some of our farmers during the Pinot Grigio harvest. A morning breeze welcomed us in the fields while the first rays of sun began to light the valley here in the middle of the Alps. In order to pick the grapes at their best, the harvest starts quite early in the morning –preserving all the crispness and the fragrances that make Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio unique.
When we arrived, the farmer, together with his family, were already working in the vineyards. Everybody helps during these days: grandparents, wives and children. They are all happy to be part of these joyful days and hold in their hands the results of their efforts spent over the past months. The grapes look wonderful this season, and everybody seems to be happy about the quality of the grapes and have great expectations for the new vintage!
While waiting for the 2012 Pinot Grigio release, we have been informed that Snooth, the largest social media of wine, has rated Mezzacorona among the Top 10 Pinot Grigio producers of the world! (www.snooth.com)
An important achievement that, together with the 90 points the Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio Riserva 2010 received from Wine Enthusiast, confirms once again the commitment, dedication, and passion of Mezzacorona in producing elegant and consistent quality wines, with the Pinot Grigio being our pride and joy, throughout the years.
We thank you, our fans, for your continued support!
