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.
Grown in the Aosta Valley since the 70s, you can find it in their vineyards since the dawn when their family needed a wine that could adapt well to the harsh climates of the second post-war period. This white berried grape was selected in 1882 by the Swiss winemaker Hermann Müller by crossing Riesling Renano and Madeleine Royal in order to obtain an elegant wine that is well suited to cold climates.
Müller Thurgau Grosjean is grown almost exclusively in a vineyard facing north, fresh and with an altitude close to 900m above sea level on the slopes of the Upper Aosta Valley. The result is a refined wine, delicate but at the same time with important hints of rose petals, peach and soft citrus notes. The minerality, daughter of the Aosta Valley terroir, is the master.
