Valle d'Aosta

In the middle of the nineteenth-century the Cornalin, was one of the most widespread indigenous vines. According to the first studies concerning the Aosta Valley ampelography (1833-1838), the viticultural territory between Saint-Vincent and Verrayes was indicated as the area where this vine was more widely found.

Similarly to other autochthonous vines, the appearance of fungal diseases (Oidium, Peronospora) and of the Phylloxera caused its abandon, until its almost total disappearance. Only a meticulous work of salvage and selection of the surviving plants by the Institut Agricole Régional allowed us to start planting this vine again.

The Cornalin is a prestigious vine with a great personality.
