Le Vieux Joseph Winery

In Ilaria’s family no one can explain how she chose to work the vineyards. There are no farmers among her ancestors and she has always studied the classics. But it was precisely the obstinacy which her literary career required that taught her to resist the hardships and take her own path. The first encounter with the grapevine dates back to her university days, in Piedmont, when, to support herself, she found employment in a cooperative that followed some winegrowers. Taking advantage of the knowledge acquired, she returned to Valle d’Aosta, to work the vineyards of others at first, then her own, investing the legacy of her grandfather, Vieux Joseph, in the land. Soon she added new plots to the initial nucleus, owned by the neighboring eldery. Today Ilaria takes care of two hectares, from which she produces three different wines.
