Chi Siamo

Il vino è pragmatismo che si trasforma in anima, è il lavoro delle mani che sa giungere al cuore. È la mattina alle cinque nei filari che diventa una bevuta tra amici.
Un discorso sulla tostatura delle botti che si fa saggezza.

Giorgio Anselmet
Gli Anselmet sono stati pionieri della riscoperta e valorizzazione di vitigni autoctoni dimenticati quali il Petit Rouge, il Cornalin, il Fumin, il Mayolet, e il Muscat.
Ma sono stati anche coraggiosi divulgatori dei vitigni internazionali, coltivati e vinificati secondo un autentico spirito valdostano.
 

Maison Anselmet è dedizione pura alla sperimentazione e indomita curiosità verso le tecniche vitivinicole più adatte a esaltare il carattere dei vini valdostani.

Una vocazione artigianale alla ricerca che ha permesso alla cantina di Villeneuve di tracciare la via al perfezionamento della viticoltura locale, rivelando al mondo le infinite potenzialità dei terroir e dei vitigni coltivati lungo la valle della Dora Baltea.

About

Wine is practicality that transforms into the soul, it is the work of the hands that know how to reach the heart. It is staying between the rows in the morning at five that turns into a drink with friends. A discourse on the toasting of barrels that becomes wisdom.
Giorgio Anselmet
The Anselmet were pioneers in the rediscovery and enhancement of forgotten indigenous grape varieties such as Petit Rouge, Cornalin, Fumin, Mayolet, and Muscat. But they were also courageous spreaders of international vines, grown and vinified according to an authentic Aosta Valley spirit.
 

Maison Anselmet is pure dedication to experimentation and indomitable curiosity towards the most suitable winemaking techniques to enhance the character of Aosta Valley wines.

An artisanal vocation for research that has allowed this Villeneuve winery to trace the path to perfecting local viticulture, revealing to the world the infinite potential of the terroirs and vines grown along the Dora Baltea valley.

HISTORY

Since then, the bond with the land and the wines produced here has never left the family. Through the generations and the daily challenges to which the mountain subjects its inhabitants, the Anselmet have dedicated their existence to the land and to the vine rows, handing down an artisan know-how that, over time, has been enriched by experiences, encounters and knowledge accumulated by its members.

My first teacher was Canon Joseph Vaudan.
From him I learned that wine is not the result of chance, but a continuous encounter between man and nature.
Giorgio Anselmet
From a subsistence and self-consumption viticulture, often aimed at the production of loose products to be used as a bargaining chip for the products of the upper valleys, the Anselmet's “winemaking” has evolved, it has specialized and has been rationalized, learning, day after day, harvest after harvest to determine the characteristics of the terroir of the Aosta Valley, of the native vines, of the climate and of the delicate relationships that combine human work with the hard, impervious and tiring mountain environment.
 

One step ahead

It was in 1978 when Renato Anselmet, having inherited the vineyards from his father Enrico, decided to continue the family tradition, taking a step forward. He has chosen to produce wine according to more rigorous quality standards, favoring quality over quantity. From the centuries-old Anselmet vineyard in Villeneuve he produced the first 70 bottles, some of which have been appreciated and purchased by local restaurateurs. Starting in the 90s, Renato bought new plots and joined the new Associazione Viticoltori of Villeneuve (Villeneuve Wine Growers Association), of which he became president, helping in exchanging ideas, rejecting superstition and gathering advice on how to raise and improve the wines produced in the Valley.
 

The passion of the pioneers

The passion for the vineyard and the curiosity of pioneers: this is the legacy that Renato Anselmet has passed on to his son Giorgio, who runs the company at present with his wife Bruna Cavagnet and their children Henri, Stephanie and Arline. An apprenticeship made up of experiments, mistakes, second thoughts, travels, tastings and, above all, decisive encounters. The first of which has been with the canon Joseph Vaudan, a professor at the Institut Agricole Régional, where Giorgio undertook his studies. Vaudan’s model, still at the foundation of the new viticulture of Aosta Valley, has been the spark of a new understanding: wine in Aosta Valley was no longer the result of chance, but the fruit of a continuous human, scientific and technological encounter coexisting with the rigid conditions imposed by the mountain. The tradition inherited from the farming culture has met with the most modern agronomic and winemaking techniques to produce wines that are proudly identity and qualitatively flawless, the result of continuous experimentation and constant testing. Vaudan has proven that the Aosta Valley could be a great wine region and that mountain wines, interpreted by vignerons eager to get involved, could find a personal expression and a quality equal to the most prestigious wine regions in the world.

Vineyard

For me, the vineyard has a monumental and religious character. I go to the vineyard knowing that I am entering a sacred dimension: every good deed has the right reward and every mistake generates irreversible consequences.
Giorgio Anselmet.
The heart of the production are the plots of Villeneuve and Saint Pierre, located on the left of the Dora, called Adret, the best exposed to the sun: here the rows grow on soils poor in organic matter, which compels the vine to go deep and put the maximum effort to reach the full ripeness of the grapes.
 

The Central Valley,
the heart of Aosta Valley viticulture

The vineyards of Maison Anselmet are all located in the so-called Central Valley, a territory of morainic origin, with the characteristic «V» shape given by the progressive disappearance of ancient glaciers that have given way to the waters of the Dora Baltea. Downstream, the soil is pebbly and sandy, while higher up it becomes steep and rocky, forcing Anselmet to a heroic viticulture, made up of handwork and diligent maintenance of the terraces. The star of the Central Valley is the climate, particularly suitable for the vine, which has found its chosen land here since the fifteenth century. Low rainfall, constant ventilation, excellent exposure and significant temperature variations give the wines a superior freshness and elegance, capable of surprising for the persistence and finesse of the aromas. .

Cellar

Tradition, territory, technology, testimony.

In the cellar, Maison Anselmet does not follow fashion, styles or trends. It makes wine according to tradition, which means giving continuity to its history, recognizing its roots. It makes wine by listening to the territory, respecting the surrounding environment and its gifts. It makes wine using the best available technology, which it puts at the service of the expressiveness of the wines, aiming at a constant improvement and versatility of operations. Above all, Anselmet makes wine in testimony, to understand, capture and enhance the peculiarities and evolutions that each season indelibly impresses on mountain wines.
