Trentino – Wine Region of 2020 & Other Wine News

Wine Enthusiast, a world premier wine magazine based in New York, selected Trentino as the Wine Region of the World 2020, “unrivaled in Italy for its diversity.” There are 164 wineries in Trentino, 77% of the production being in white grapes and 23% in red. Organic grapes comprise 12% of the total, and that percentage is constantly increasing. The main importers of Trentino wines are the US, the UK and Germany. Wine Enthusiast adds:
“The Trentino region is one of the most dynamic, multifaceted, quality terroir driven wine-producing areas in the world today.”
In 2005 Wine Spectator, the “Bible” of the wine world, named Cantina Mezzacorona one of the “Top 20 Value-Oriented Wineries” for its quality and reliability. Only 5 European wines were on the list. Mezzacorona’s Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay were acclaimed for their “refined varietal aromas and vibrant acidity”.
