The pearl of the Alpine wines comes from Europe's highest vineyard. The vineyard terraces lie close to each other in rows on the southern slope, below the Morgex village at the foot of the Mont Blanc. The special wines are produced at an elevation of 900 to 1200 meters above sea level and the grapes are called prié blanc, that is native to these hills.
Because of the remote location or the extreme climate, this vineyards resisted the phylloxera plague that wiped out many European vineyards in the 19th century. As a result, some of the vines in Morgex date to 1850; old vines are prized for the richness and character they give to wine.
