Nestling between Switzerland, France and Piedmont, the Aosta Valley is one of Italy’s most beautiful regions, characterized by the Alps’ highest peaks, stunning glacial valleys and lush lowlands. “Valdostani” have been producing wine in this mountainous region since Roman times, vying with the alpine climate by terracing the south facing slopes of the valley and carefully selecting the most apt grape varieties. Today, the area is better known for its ski resorts, but the adventurous summer traveler will be well rewarded. The area has a mountain culture which is still very much alive; batailles des reines, carnivals, street markets, the bizarre Aostan sports of tzan and fiolet… not to mention a fascinating history; Romans, Hannibal’s elephants, medieval chateaux, Napoleon, the Grand Tourists… as well as some of the worlds’ most beautiful walking trails… and a regional gastronomy to rival that of any other Italian region. And wines. Wines for all palates; award-winning full bodied reds, champagne-style sparkling wines, refreshing dry whites, as well as unusual ice-wines and much, much more...
