2021 Valle d’Aosta Petite Arvine

Château Feuillet

The Valle d’Aosta is a deep valley that runs east to west, closed off just before the French border by some of the highest peaks in the Alps. Vineyards here are like little gardens clinging to steep south-facing mountainsides, where only a thin layer of sandy topsoil lines the hard granite bedrock. Abundant direct sun and cold nights amplify the aromatic expression of the local grapes while preserving zingy acidity, a recipe for delicate, perfumed wines that dance energetically across the palate. Sipping Feuillet’s Petite Arvine evokes the euphoria of running through a field of Alpine wildflowers—admittedly a cliché, until you feel the exacting mineral purity of this floral bianco wash over your senses.

About Valle d’Aosta

map of Valle d’Aosta

Italy’s smallest region by surface area and by annual production, Valle d’Aosta is also one of its most strikingly beautiful. In the heart of the Alps bordering France and Switzerland, this is a stark landscape dominated by jagged, snow-capped peaks, where tiny terraced vineyard parcels cling to steep, rocky slopes of sand and alluvial deposits. Winemaking here dates back to Roman times, and today a growing number of small-scale producers persist with the heroic kind of viticulture required to brave this extreme terrain.

In the shadow of the Mont Blanc, the Valle d’Aosta runs west to east, providing excellent southern exposure to the vineyards on its northern slopes. In spite of the altitude—these are some of Europe’s highest vineyards—the hot, dry summers provide conditions in which a number of indigenous varieties, along with others of French or Swiss origin, truly thrive. Petite Arvine, Prié Blanc, Petit Rouge, Fumin, and Cornalin are just a few of the grapes responsible for the region’s whites and reds, which range from bright juicy, aromatic, and mineral-driven to powerful and rustic in character.

Château Feuillet represents our first Valle d’Aosta import. With its singular wines from an absolutely breathtaking environment, it is certainly a region to get excited about.
