Cave du Vin Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle

The Cave was founded in 1983 as the first result of the policy of support and development of Valdostan viticulture enacted by the Administration.

In the past the Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle was marketed by individual vignerons, with modest production, however, that did not guarantee a consistent presence on the market or a proper dissemination of the overall wine production image.

Some internal stimuli, such as a well-deserved sense of pride in their traditions and the centuries-old custom of working in groups in the Alpine villages, and external ones such as the foresight of Don Bougeat, Morgex Parish priest until 1971, gave rise to the creation of the "Association des Viticulteurs."

A decade later, in 1983, from the ashes of the first group, the Cave du Vin Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle was founded as the first result of the policy of support and development of Valdostan viticulture enacted by the Regional Administration. It later took possession of the new technologically state-of-the-art headquarters of Morgex.

In its first decade of vinification activity, the Cave du Vin Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle practically doubled the number of partners, currently around one hundred, and increased its production by 100%, now counting 150,000 bottles per year. This was an additional confirmation of the success of reviving once-abandoned vintages on the peak of Mont Blanc, in the desire to prevent local centuries-old traditions from disappearing.

Certainly the production data can appear slight compared with other wine-growing realities, but it should be recalled that this represents more than 90% of the grapes gathered in the municipalities of Morgex and La Salle, for a total of 20 hectares of surface area, and, especially because the geomorphologic characteristics of the terrain present a low possibility of expansion.
