Prié Blanc, grown on a total DOC area of 29 ha and vinified in the municipalities of Morgex and La Salle, is the grape at the base of Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle Valle d’Aosta PDO, a wine with ancient origins in the legend that explodes in freshness and vivacity; a wine with a young temperament that has spanned centuries and history, presenting itself today as it was born.
“Excellent as an aperitif, it also goes well with fish, white meats and medium-aged cheeses.” Ermes Pavese
Considered one of the highest grape varieties in Europe, Prié Blanc, the grape at the base of the Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle Valle d’Aosta PDO, is the only native white grape variety of the Aosta Valley. It has the particularity of being cultivated ungrafted, that is, not grafted onto American vines, since the altitude at which it is grown makes it immune from the attack of various parasites, including phylloxera.
Its cultivation is very ancient and dates back to at least 1200. As evidence of this, the documents of ownership changes that attest to the existence of the “Blanc de Morgex” vineyards already at the time.
