Inherited the lands by his wife, in 1968 Grandpa Dauphin started bottling his own wine for the “II Exposition des Vins du Val d’Aoste”: the success of that fair encouraged the Grosjean grandfather’s drive that brought the farm from 3000 sq.m to the current 12 hectares. In the following years, all five sons committed themselves to the work: Vincent, Giorgio, Marco, Fernand and Eraldo, everyone expert in his own department. A new winery was built in 2000 in order to hold the increasing harvests. In 2011 a breakthrough happened: by mutual agreement the organic conversion started, the first winery in Valle d’Aosta. In 2015 a further renewal allowed to increase the winery in order to host all the 120,000 bottles produced.

Winemaking

Guyot bush forming system. Both mechanical and manual farming operations, with techniques allowed in the organic farming. No use of insecticides, nor acaricides, and not even chemical weeding are performed. Ferlilisation is performed just with organic substances (manure).

The Cuvéeottantanove is produced with the blend of Muscat Petit Grain, Muller Thurgau and Pinot Gris, the grapes are harvested together in the first days of September, pressed in whole bunches, the must is cold-decanted for 12-18 hours and then is decanted to separate the sediments. Alcoholic fermentation occurs spontaneously in a steel tank at a very low temperature. In the following months the wine rests on the lees. In December, a part of the must previously frozen in the harvest period is added, the mass is mixed and heated up to 25 degrees and on the same day it is bottled and closed with the crown cap. In the following 30-40 days the alcoholic fermentation restarts which will create the natural effervescence of the wine. At the end of fermentation we will have the pressure at about 2.5 – 2.8 atm and a presence of natural background, composed of yeasts that are rich in proteins and antioxidants.
