Petite Arvine
Vigne Rovettaz
2013
Italy

The Grosjean estate encompasses seven hectares of vineyards.  The domaine is located in the hamlet of Ollignan on the border of the towns of Quart and Saint Christophe and includes “cru” vineyard sites such as Tzeriat, Rovettaz, Creton and Touren in Quart, plus Tzantè de Bagnere, Merletta and Castello di Pleod in Saint Christophe. After starting out with the traditional Petit Rouge along with some Gamay, Pinot Noir and Petite Arvine, the Grosjeans have planted other local varietals such as Fumin, Cornalin, Premetta and Vuillermin.  Sustainable farming techniques have been in place since 1975: only organic fertilizers are applied and no pesticides or herbicides are used.  Natural yeasts are utilized for fermentation.

The Valle d'Aosta DOC (or Valle d'Aosta) is an Italian denominazione di origine controllata located in the Aosta Valley of northwest Italy. Surrounded by the Alps, the Valle d'Aosta is home to the highest elevated vineyards in all of Europe. The principal winemaking region of the Valle d'Aosta is found along the eastern banks of the Dora Baltea river with the city of Aosta serving as the central winemaking location. The region is divided into three main vineyard areas; the upper valley, Valdigne, the central valley, Valle Centrale and the lower valley, Bassa Valley. To the south is the winemaking region of Piemonte. The Valle d'Aosta is Italy's smallest winemaking region both in terms of size and production with only about 330,000 cases produced annually in the region and only 36,000 cases produced under the DOC label. Seventy five percent of the area's production is red wine made mostly from the Pinot Noir, Gamay and Petit Rouge varieties. The majority of white wine production is made from the indigenous Blanc de Morgex grape.
