In 1810 the Charrères planted their first two hectares of grapes, focusing on making quality wines out of the indigenous vinifera varieties grown in the Aosta Valley. In 1989 the Charrères enlarged the original estate and built the Les Crêtes winery. The winery, the heart of the estate, is located in the scenic Aymavilles area of the Aosta Valley. Les Crêtes’ Vineyards are spread over 20 hectares among parcels in six different villages. Les Crêtes’ wines have a mineral freshness and elegance that expresses the essence of mountain “terroir”.
