High Altitudes Wines with Attitude
Winemaker / Proprietor
Vallée d'Aoste, Italy
Motivated by passion, Elio Ottin left his stable job as an Agricultural Engineer to start his own winery in 2007. With four hectares on the south-facing hills of Saint-Christophe and Quart, Elio began the process of producing wines in the extreme climatic conditions of the land. These conditions allow him to produce wines of intense ripeness without the need of much chemical intervention. From pruning to harvesting, each process to attain optimal flavours is carried out by hand and with a personal touch. Using only indigenous varieties, Ottin’s style is distinct: rich, powerful aromas coupled with concentrated flavours that instead of tiring the palate, they make you keep returning for another glass.
