That's ridiculously fun to say. It's even more fun to say if you feign an Italian accent a la the waiter in Lady & the Tramp.
Google Translate defines "mezzacorona" as "half crown." I'm not sure why the vineyard decided to go with that name, because it certainly doesn't match the majesty of the property where they cultivate their grapes. Mama mia—set in the foothills of the Italian Dolomites. And with its rolling hills and sapphire blue skies, it's utterly and completely gorgeous.
But I digress.
Mezzacorona makes a delightful Pinot Grigio that complements soups, salads, and white meats. Its green apple and honeysuckle notes pair delightfully with crisp acidity, and make you think you've paid more for the bottle than you have.
I've seen a bottle retail for $16, which isn't bad at all, but shh: you can find it here for only $8.70!
