Itinerary 1: Wines of Monte Bianco

A unique territory and a superlative grape variety, for a White... of high level.

Wines of Mont Blanc

This territory includes the territories of Morgex and La Salle in Valdigne, a wide green basin set at the foot of Mont Blanc, that will conquer you with its varied beauty, between gentle green hills cultivated as vineyards and orchards with typical villages scattered here and there, and rugged snow-capped peaks that cut into the sky, age-old guardians of this corner of paradise.

This is the territory par excellence of the Prié Blanc, the only native white-berried variety cultivated traditionally on a low pergola; special climate conditions have preserved them from phylloxera; today it is one of the rare varieties not grafted onto American vines. The wine production is obtained at altitudes that reach maximum points at 1225 meters and descend to 900 meters altitude.
