Valle d'Aosta: the highest vineyards in Europe

Italy’s smallest region, Valle d’ Aosta lies on the northwestern corner of the country, bordering France and Switzerland,  to the south and east with Piedmont. It covers the namesake valley and the surrounding alpine chains, with Monte Bianco being the highest mountain in Western Europe (4810 meters).

Vineyards have prospered on the foothills of the alps of Valle d’ Aosta and on their slopes ever since Roman times. Terraced vineyards planted to Priè Blanc in the townships of Morgex and La Salle are the highest in Europe, peaking at 1200 meters.

Even though volumes are extremely tiny, the wines of Valle d’Aosta enjoy a great reputation among connoisseurs: slim, nuanced, high-acid, and often displaying aromas of freshly picked spontaneous herbs and flowers, they are the perfect reflection of the alpine terroir.
