Castel Firmian is one of Trentino’s most famous castles. Standing in the town of Mezzocorona, it was erected in the 13th century, originally as a tower that guardedover 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.
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 large deposit of wine destined for the imperial court.
Castel Firmian is the Mezzacorona range dedicated to specialist retail and on premise, crafted to be a perfect complement to Italian and international cuisine.
