Tanteun and Marietta Winery
The winery was born out of the dream of bringing the noises, smells and emotions deriving from the transformation of an agricultural production back to the center of the city of Aosta, within the historic premises of the ancient Mulino della Ressaz.
The great-grandparents Tanteun and Marietta, with their life’s work and their stubbornness, gave their great grandchildren the opportunity to take their first steps in the great and wonderful world of wine.
Tanteun bequeathed the space in which the winery is located, where with foresight he kept the old mill hidden and protected; Marietta passed on her passion for wine and vine cultivation, making her grandson Emiro promise to replant his vineyard in Champagnole, where it all started.
Since 2012, the creators of the company Federico and Alessandra have been cultivating two hectares of old vineyards and transforming the grapes into 10.000 bottles of white and red D.O.C. (Controlled Denomination of Origin).
White DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) wines: La Tocca, Vallée d’Aoste Muscat Petit grain, Valle d’Aosta Pinot gris “Bizelle”
Red DOP wines: Lo Toque, Valle d’Aosta Pinot noir “R.E.M.”, Valle d’Aosta Pinot noir “R.E.M. + ”, Valle d’Aosta Rouge” Farouche ”, Valle d’Aosta Rouge” Boheme ”

How to get there
The company is located in a courtyard of the 1700s, opposite the central bus station of Aosta; it can therefore be reached by the public transportation serving the city, by car or on foot.
