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. Sandy-loamy soil and partly loamy-sand soil with low depth (less than 50 cm) and an abundance of skeleton. Cultivation operations partly mechanical and partly manual, with techniques allowed only in organic farming. The fertilizations are carried out with the addition of organic substances (manure).

Particular selection of Moscato Bianco that has always been grown in the Aosta Valley. The vineyards are located partly in Quart and partly in Chambave. The cultivation techniques are those provided for organic viticulture therefore no type of weeding and chemical fertilizer.

White vinification, with the use of pied de cuve. Aging 5-6 months in steel on fine lees with repeated batonnage, 3 months in the bottle. Bottling in the first months of the new year.

Tasting notes
