Situated in the Val d'Aosta DOC, Le Crotta de
Vegneron vines are grown on southward facing, fragmented vineyards
set on steep mountain slopes. 35% of the total production is red
grapes and 65% white grapes.
La Crotta di Vegneron's philosophy centres on the enhancement of
autochthonous vines such as Petit Rouge, Fumin, and Vien de Nus, in
addition to the traditional ones such as Muscat de Chambave and Nus
Malvoisie. The company also produces international wines such as
Pinot Noir, Gamay and Müller Thurgau.
La Crotta di Vegneron's vineyards are located at a fairly high
altitude, ranging from 500 to 850m enjoying a special microclimate,
with little rainfall, high average temperatures in the day and
rather low temperatures in the summer nights. These morphological
and climatic characteristics favour the ripening of the grapes and
limit parasitic attacks, hence very few treatments are needed, and
where necessary, the treatments made are used frugally and out of
respect for the environment.
