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 on “ciglioni“. 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. Fertilisation is performed just with organic substances (manure).

A noble and delicate grape variety which, it is said, was already cultivated on those territories in the days when Aosta Valley belonged to the KIngdom of Burgundy, and that gives the best results in our mountains when planted on levels ranging between 600 and 850 metres above sea level, where day/night thermic excursion and exposition to sun produce perfectly healthy and ripe grapes.

Vinification with destemmed grapes, and no yeast added. Maceration with skin for 8-10 days pumping over three times a day at controlled temperature. Aging refinement in large wooden barrels.

Tasting notes

It features a ruby colour tending to garnet, complex and persistent nose with hints of wild berries, balanced in the mouth, soft with dry taste and good alcohol content, slightly tannic.

Pairing recommendation

Good accompaniment to meat dishes or cheeses.
