    THE CELLAR:

    Immersed in the heart of the Alps at the foot of  Mont Blanc, the Aosta Valley (Valle d'Aosta) offers a breathtaking landscape where culture, tradition, food, and wine blend perfectly to create unique and refined products. Here the "Cave des Onze Communes" was born, a winery that boasts one of the highest wine productions in Europe thanks to the 60 hectares of vineyards. The vinyards are fragmented, distributed over the territory of 11 municipalities: Quart, Saint-Christophe, Aosta, Sarre, Saint Pierre, Villeneuve, Introd, Aymavilles, Jovençan, Gressan, Charvensod. Located à l'Adret and à l'Envers della Dora Baltea, the landscape traverses altitudes that reach between 550 and 900 meters above sea level, giving vineyards of extraordinary beauty. Difficult land to mechanize farming, this wine tells a history of decades of effort and sweat. The Aosta Valley viticulture is a rarity of its kind.


    Incessant and delicate work begins precisely within these high vineyards. Strictly native, with a limited use of pesticides and a correct use of agronomic practices. 70% of the area is covered in the production of DOC (Denomination of Controlled Origin) wines which guarantees not only wines of excellent quality but the important redevelopment of the rural territory, otherwise destined for complete abandonment, thus encouraging the planting of vineyards in terraced areas. A wine landscape of enormous richness, made even more fascinating by the slope of the vines, the storage, and the difficult climate of the winter months. The vineyards, managed in full organic farming, are the great result of winegrowers and professionals in the sector who devote their attention to each phase of the wine creation process from the vegetative cycle to bottling and labeling.
