Aosta

The Valle d'Aosta is in the northwest of Italy. Surrounded by the Alps and due to the mountainous location near the Mont Blanc, wine industry is only possible in very favorably located plots. In the upper part of the valley, in the municipalities of Morgex and La Salle, the highest vineyards in Europe are located at an altitude of 900-1300 m. There, dry, lively white wines are grown for quick enjoyment. In the middle part of the valley, red wines are produced as a blend of the local grape varieties Petit Rouge and Vien de Nus. In particularly favored locations international grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Gamay or Nebbiolo are cultivated.
