“A white wine for aging vinified entirely in wood for a year. It is a buttery, full-bodied, soft wine, to be paired with great traditional Aosta Valley dishes such as "Valpelleneitze" or typical Savoyard dishes such as "Raclette". The name – Daphne: the origins of the label derive from the Daphne Alpina, a rare and poisonous plant found almost exclusively on the moraine “la Côte de Gargantua” of Gressan. Like Daphne, our wine is unique and viscerally linked to the territory of our country.”
Cave Gargantua is a company that struck me straight away, I had no doubts, I had to include it in the cellar. Born from the idea of two brothers, Laurent and Andrea Cunéaz, it came to life in their parents' home in Gressan. Their continuous experimentation with remarkable results, the commitment, the professionalism and the way in which they believe in their business really impressed me. Cave Gargantua creates great Aosta Valley wines and will certainly have many surprises in store for us in the future.
