Nosio S.p.a. in Mezzocorona is responsible for the marketing of nearly 50 million bottles of wine and sparkling wine. To do so, the subsidiary of the Mezzocorona Group has tied together a dense network which encompasses the entire globe and sees to it that wines from Trentino make it to the shelves in sixty countries of the world.
But the marketing of wines from the Mezzocorona Group is just one of the pillars of Nosio S.p.a., which also deals with the bottling and marketing of sparkling wines from Rotari Trentodoc as well as two estate wineries in Sicily. The bandwidth of tasks is therefore a broad one, but the foundation upon which the company rests is even much broader. The Mezzacorona Group may in fact be the primary shareholder, but the remaining shares are divided among nearly five hundred small shareholders.
In total, there are 48 million bottles of wine and sparkling wine for which Nosio S.p.a. seeks purchasers year after year throughout the entire world. “For us, exports are of fundamental importance. We achieve around 80 percent of our sales abroad,” emphasizes President Luca Rigotti, who places great value on working not only profitably, but also sustainably. Thus the parent company of Nosio S.p.a., the Mezzacorona Group, was the first winery in all of Italy to present in 2016 not only an economic balance sheet, but also a social and environmental one, as well. “We will continue along this path,” says Rigotti. “In the future, we also want to account for what we do for our region and the people here ”
