About the event
Castel Firmian located in one of the most precious regions of the world. This stunning vineyard sits at the foot of the Dolomites benifiting the grapes of this alpine climate. Warm days and cool nights carressed by the local lakes of the surrounding area.
Trentino is also a land abounding in history and traditions. It is stud with many castles and noble Castel Firmian is one of Trentino’s most famous castles. Since 1480, the year in which Count Firmian’s restoration was completed, it has stood majestic above the manicured vineyards of Piana Rotaliana. Standing in the town of Mezzocorona, it was erected in the 13th century, originally as a tower that guarded
over the Piana Rotaliana plane. It belonged to the noble family of Mez (which was the ancient name of Mezzocorona) and was restored, expanded and improved by Count Nicolò Firmian after his wedding with Dorotea Mez. Since 1480, the year in which Count Firmian’s restoration was completed, it has stood majestic above the manicured vineyards of Piana Rotaliana.
The castle’s importance is closely linked to the figure of the Count who was a very famous and powerful man of his times and who had an excellent relationship with the imperial Habsburg families of the Courts of Innsbruck and Vienna. Thanks to his influence, the wine trade
between Piana Rotaliana and the Austrian nobility grew considerably. Indeed, Castel Firmian itself hosted a largedeposit of wine destined for the imperial court.
Come enjoy these deep rooted wines of history and beauty as Susan Favret of Prestige Wine Imports taste us through Castel Firmian wines.
