The La Crotta di Vegneron Cooperative was set up in 1980 with 25 partners. Today it counts 70 partners and it has reached a production of 200,000 bottles. The Cooperative collects the grapes coming from two important areas which give the name to the Chambave Denomination of Origin and Nus.

Ours is first and foremost a history of people who are deeply rooted in this beautiful alpine region, generations of skillful “viticulteurs” whose objective has always been to get the best quality out of their vines and their sloped terraces. La Crotta di Vegneron pursues the ancient tradition of the “campagnards”, whose strength lies in the relationship between autochthonous vines and terroir.

Bordering west with France and north with Switzerland, La Crotta di Vegneron’s wines and grappas emanate the spirit of the Aosta Valley mountains thanks to ancient autochthonous vines, traditional vines cultivated with great skill and pride and which are respectful of the multifaceted terroir.


La Crotta De Vegneron’s seven labels, all respectful of the ancestral methods which give the distillates unique, genuine tastes. Each grappa has its own characteristics that recall many different aromas to the nose and to the mind. Malvoisie Flétri grappa is an intriguing and elegant mix of scents that remind of apricots and peaches. Grappa has always been the loyal companion of mountain dwellers: ideal digestive and clear nectar with a subtle scent and dry taste.

Nonus, the ninth mile of Chambave, is the grappa of Malvoisie Fletri aged in small barrels. The bottle is very particular with a round base ending with a square extrusion, for this reason the wine stylist Cristina Ciamporcero choose to create a small label with a hole in the shape of a 9 from which it is possible to see, through the bottle, the honey-colored spirit.

The designer looked for a colour-pulp paper and was inspired by the Arconvert self-adhesive paper Savile Row Tweed Dark Grey, is a natural self-adhesive paper made with a mixture of ecological paste free of chlorine (ECF), embossed out of the machine with textile design. Savile Row Tweed is a range of embossed papers that combine the elegance of design with technical and functional features, also thanks to the Ultra WS treatment. Arconvert is able to offer the widest range of colored papers in the pulp, which allows eliminating definitively the unsightly problem of the edge and the white back of the label.

The label of Nonus grappa is embellished with a matt serigraphical white ink and a copper hot-foil. The 9 resulting from the dye-catting of the label is reused and applied manually as a seal for the wooden cap.
