Marzemino

Mozart’s Inspiration

Around 20 different grape varieties are cultivated in Trentino, Italy, all of which provide extremely varied wines. The red Marzemimo also originates from these vineyards, and it is a grape which even found its way into opera. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart stayed frequently in Trentino, and he loved the dark red wines pressed from Marzemino so much that he composed a memorial to the wine for his opera Don Giovanni. His Marzemino aria begins, “Versa il vino! Eccelente Marzemino.”

This inspiring vine has been cultivated since at least Roman times, and its home is surely Italy. While it has been alleged that the grape stems from an Austrian village called Marzemin, there is no such village
