Quality and Altitude. 2001 is tha date the Maison was founded, a corner stone of MaisonAnselmet, but the Anselmets refer to 1585 as starting date of wineyard’s acitvity. Chardonnay, Petite Arvine, Pinot Noir and lePrisonnier are results of this path.
In 2001 the company was born but the craft of winemaker in Anselmet family dates back to 1585. A knowledge among the rows and in the cellar that is transmitted from generation through generation with unchanged passion.
The mountain has always been considered as a synonym for open spaces and freedom. But attending the mountain in a “sweet” way, without demanding what it can not offer, respecting what it can give us, is the first act of strong responsibility. An incipit that smells of warning to the simple ‘user’ of this landscape, but which instead wants to be strongly connected to a family of Valle d’Aosta, which has made environmental responsibility an indispensable dogma. A vigorous revindication, that of the Anselmet, which translates not only into an awareness of one’s abilities and limitations, but above all transforms into effective maturity. Yes, as the first sure track of an Anselmet winemaker is in 1585 with a contract to purchase a vineyard in Villeneuve. Since then, the commitment to cultivate the vine is handed down from generation to generation until the end of the ’70s.
