This small winery in the middle of the town contains the essence of a land that has always embraced viniculture despite the difficulties posed by the mountain environment. A seal on the municipality’s coat of arms bears the motto “jamais sans toi”, referring to the two bunches of grapes decorating it.
Ronsil House is a successful union of two sides of the Alps, between two nations that are usually rivals on the wine front. After moving to Lyon for work, at retirement age Pierino Ronsil returned to his roots to grow his ancestors’ grapevines, inspiring his son-inlaw Franck Thollet, already an expert vintner, whose very accent reveals his French origins. Avanà and Bequét are the classic pair of native grapes, both made into wine in this winery along with other Piedmont varieties like Barbera, Dolcetto and Neretta Cuneese, harvested from the four areas: Voute, Puy, Finières and Roche du Bau.
