It's been a while since the first time I arrived here in Valle d'Aosta, driven by the desire of knowing its viticultural history. Every time a new secret spot is waiting to be unveiled. There's nothing better in the world than these valleys.
Neal Rosenthal's words, our partner and friend in the american adventure, synthesise perfectly what incites us everyday in our job. We have the luck to live and work in one of the most precious pearls of the Earth and the wonder that we feel daily breathing the environment that surrounds us drive us to work at our best to distil as much beauty as possibile from all this splendor.
How can we live in such a close contact with our terroir without a crazy desire to preserve and valorise it? Grandpa Dauphin in his heart knew it when, already 50 years ago didn't use any pesticides nor acaricides; our fathers, in 2011, bravely wanted to tell the world working fiercely to get the Organic certification. Once you are committed to a mission, you need to take out all the strength and willpower in order to realise it.
And so, on the passage of the third generation and the upgrade of the photovoltaic solar system, we wanted to actualize and give continuity to this work of safeguarding. Maybe, home, with its products and riches, is really the place from where to start building something more beautiful and healthier.
