Tell me about this wine….

You’ll see from our social media and our interviews with our Aosta Valley winemakers that Petite Arvine is the favourite wine of winemakers, and for good reason. A native Swiss grape, making its way to the Aosta Valley in the ’70s, like everything else, the Italians took something and made it, well, Italian. They took the abundant sunshine and high altitude of the terroir in Aosta, & turned this grape into easily one of the most quaffable white wines in the world. I cannot sing the praises of this wine enough. It’s woody and vanilla-like on the nose, and the vanilla comes through on the palate, but it remains fresh with floral notes. There aren’t words in the English language to describe it, Petite Arvine simply has to be tasted to be believed. This is the wine you serve at dinner to people who normally only drink red, it’s a gateway white !

Serve With…

On its own, Petite Arvine stands up, she has character and style and doesn’t need anything. But if you are to serve her and you’re feeling indulgent, she does really well with traditional French cuisine, think duck, think french onion soup.
