He begins to found a family and to restore the land of his ancestors to cultivation (he says that he must work the land to belong definitively to this valley). he chooses, his usual love, and little by little he manages to buy and cultivate 15.000 square meters. Former winemaker and winemaker of Crotta di Chambave (from 1991 to 2005) he learns and becomes passionate more and more.

Today almost two and a half hectares give life to the Vuillermin vines. Petit Rouge, Cornalin, Fumin, Muscat, Pinot Noir - all autochthonous except Pinot Noir which originates in the French region Bourgogne and Muscat, which is a historical vine of the Aosta Valley tradition. According to Hervé's philosophy, everything starts from the work in the vineyard: "I reserve particular and respectful care for the plant to avoid unnecessary treatments in the vineyard, arriving at the harvest with a healthy and mature bunch. In the cellar then, with the help of man, nature will do its normal work. " La Vrille is a small company but equipped with everything, with hens, sheep, geese, rabbits, a vegetable garden with greenhouses and an orchard. Luciana's cuisine is a "zero centimeter" and coherent cuisine, where each ingredient comes from its own garden and from the territory through a careful selection of small Aosta Valley producers. The traditional cuisine, revisited by Luciana's creative flair, follows the rhythm of the seasons and there is no shortage of homemade pasta and the skilful use of local aromatic herbs which, combined with a selection of 12 different peppers from all over the world , make the dishes particularly interesting and original.
