La Kiuva

La Kiuva is a tiny cooperative winery with 50 grower members founded in 1975. It is located in the picturesque and wonderfully situated Vallee d’Aoste, which borders both France and Switzerland. The word “kiuva” is local dialect for a “sheaf of leaves” typically gathered in the fall to feed livestock. It’s also a play on the Italian “chi uva” meaning literally “who grape.”



With some of the highest-lying vineyards in the world, the growers of La Kiuva are devoted to the cultivation of distinctive grape varieties like the local clone of Nebbiolo known as Picotendro. Bordered by France to the west and Switzerland to the north, the Aosta Valley is renowned for its ability to deliver fresh but highly complex wines thanks to the region’s combination of altitude, diluvial subsoils, alpine air currents, and extremely steep terraced pergola-trained vineyards.



With roughly 15 hectares planted to vine, La Kiuva’s growers do all their vineyard work by hand. Not by choice but necessity: The vineyard slopes are so steep that they are not accessible to tractors. A favourite among wine critics, La Kiuva is known for the freshness and wonderful drinkability of its alpine wines.
