First documented under the name Vuillermin in 1890, the grape was virtually extinct until it was discovered by ampelographers at the Institut Agricole Regional of Aosta growing in isolated vineyards in communes of Chatillon and Pontey. In 2011, DNA analysis showed that Vuillermin was the offspring of Fumin. Vuillermin is a promising indigenous variety, mostly used in blends, that was once much more widely planted throughout the Central Valley.
The wines La Vrille has been awarded in national and international guides and competitions.
they grow in south-facing vineyards in the municipality of Verrayes at 650 m elevation. This is a silky and delicate wine with a light, elegant body.
A sour-cherry aroma mingles with smoky touches of dried fig, porcini, with ripe black-cherry fruit emerging on the mid-palate. It finishes slightly of tart cherries, with just enough tannin to frame the palate. This wine is the perfect wine for your next pork dish.
