Les Cretes Aosta Valley
The winery Les Cretes produces its aromatic wines at the foot of Mont Blanc in Valle D’Aosta, where the cool and dry climate and atmospheric agents caress the vines placed on steep slopes where heroic viticulture is applied.
It produces wine through the cultivation of native vines such as Petit Arvin or Fumin, but also uses vines not originating from Valle d’Aosta but adapted to the climate of the Alps ensuring a production of super-quality.
Les Cretes has also decided to reduce the environmental impact as much as possible to favor the enchanting surrounding ecosystem and as if that were not enough has joined a new European Union program to minimize the impact and use of pesticides to obtain a higher quality of their “nectar”.
Every taste will transport you to Valle D’Aosta.
