Who I Am
In each Bildungsroman, the moment when the protagonist “grows up” is described.
In my personal history, this transition took place in 2013, when I decided to rent a vineyard owned by Filippo Garin and start making wine, without external conditioning, under the name of La Plantze.
My name is Henri Anselmet and wine, for me, is a family legacy. In the 1980s, my grandfather Renato was president of the Associazione Viticoltori of Villeneuve (Villeneuve Winegrowers Association), starting a slow revolution which years later, thanks to the teachings of canon Joseph Vaudan, helped to change the face and quality of Aosta Valley wines. My father is Giorgio Anselmet, owner of Maison Anselmet, and he is part of that “second wave” of vignerons of the valley who, at the end of the 90s, believed in the value of native varieties, making their expressive potential known all over the world.
