Cultivated in Valle d'Aosta since the 70s, we find it in our vineyards since the dawn when our family needed a wine that could adapt well to the harsh climates of the second post-war period. This white berried grape was selected in 1882 by the Swiss winemaker Hermann Muller by crossing Riesling Renano and Madeleine Royal in order to obtain an elegant wine that is well suited to cold climates. Muller Thurgau Grosjean is grown almost exclusively in a vineyard facing north, fresh and with an altitude close to 900m above sea level on the slopes of the Alta Valle d'Aosta. The result is a refined wine, delicate but at the same time with important hints of rose petals, peach and soft citrus notes. The minerality, daughter of the Aosta Valley terroir, is the master. After a few years of stop, in 2020 we are back with a great classic of Valdostana Viticulture.

Grosjean is our reality: a company that has been working with the land and its fruits for generations. Grosjean, however, is first of all a family and we would like to give space to all those who are part of it. In the next lines we will not find labels, but we will give space to those who hide behind them, our Family, made up of people. Because, as in all things, it is the human factor that makes the difference, especially now that we are immersed in a world that, with its frenetic rhythms and its virtual sociality, tends to overshadow it.
