Discover the grape variety: Roussette d'Ayze

Roussette d'Ayze is one of the secondary grape varieties used in the production of Ayze wines. It is grown only in the Arve Valley, in the communes of Marignier, Ayze and Bonneville, covering a total area of approximately 22 hectares. If its grapes are white at the beginning, they gradually turn golden, until they are ripe. Despite the juicy pulp of the Ayze roussette, it is not sufficiently aromatic and the wine it produces is of average quality, which is why it is considered more effective in the production of sparkling wines. The cultivation is fruitful and somewhat rapid, provided of course that this variety is not exposed to grey rot or mildew.
