The surrounding dolomitic rocks that protect the plain and the village of Mezzo significantly influence the accumulation and subsequent dispersion of heat. The winds created by the convergence of two major valleys – Val di Non and Valle dell ’Adige – mitigate the temperature and especially the air humidity. As a result, the grapes grow healthy and vigorous.
In this “perfect place” – where the climate and the soils interact beautifully - indigenous varietals (such as Teroldego) and international ones (such as Pinot Grigio) thrive and produce rich fruits with unique profiles.
And all around it, the beautifully sun-exposed hillside vineyards, are home of the white varietals (such as Riesling X Sylvaner and Chardonnay). The plots are located at different altitudes according to their specific needs and aptitudes. As a result, they greatly benefit from the height and from the sun caress reaching their perfect equilibrium of aromas/acidity/freshness.
In the whole area, the dolomitic climate has always forged the vines’ characters, making their aromas and fragrances strong and unique. In particular, the wide difference in temperatures from day to night results in a higher level of final acidity which imparts freshness and lift to the wines
