You can find the e-mail address by opening the Golf Club website from “Open website” and then searching for “contacts” or some Golf Clubs have the form to fill out to get the Tee Time. I think it’s better to send an email to the Secretariat. Opens Google Map at the point of the Golf Club. You can have the necessary information to reach the playing field or to know the distances for example from the Hotel you have chosen for the stay.

WHAT TO EAT IN VALLE AOSTA

What typical dishes to try in this beautiful land? A small Italian region, located on the border with France and Switzerland, it is famous above all for its important ski resorts, and is also the custodian of medieval castles and fortresses of undoubted interest. Due to its position, Valle d’Aosta cuisine has different characteristics from the Mediterranean one, such as, for example, the use of butter and other animal fats instead of olive oil. Quite greasy cuisine, the undisputed protagonists are meats, vegetables and dairy products

The cheeses
Those who love cheeses will no longer want to leave the Aosta Valley. You will find many, of all types and very delicious. The most famous is undoubtedly Fontina, but you must also try Fromadzo, Reblec, Seras, Toma di Gressoney, perhaps accompanying them with typical cold cuts such as Arnad lard, Motsetta and Bosses ham.

The first
At low, very low temperatures, what’s better? You will certainly find the one that is right for you with soups and soups. For example, we mention the seupa de grì, the Valpellinese soup, made with black bread, cabbage and fontina, and the soupe paysanne and the cogne soup which is characterized by the presence of rice. How can we forget polenta? The polenta concia is prepared with cheese and then cooked in the oven.

Seconds
Here is the kingdom of game. You will be able to taste excellent dishes such as venison and Valdostan cutlet and chamois civet. Then remember to taste the carbonade, a traditional dish, the recipe calls for the beef to be sauteed for 12 days and cooked in garlic and smoked lard. Dry egg white wine sauce, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and cloves are then added.

The sweets
It also leaves room for dessert. The Aosta Valley tiles are excellent almond paste tablets that you absolutely must taste. Then there are brochat, cogne cream and mont blanc. Also try the Aosta Valley coffee, but forget the classic espresso. In this case sugar is added to the coffee, grappa a lemon zest and it is flamed in a wooden cup.

THE WINES

A small region in the balance between Italy and France, Valle D’Aosta has a single DOC Valle D’Aosta or Valleè d’Aoste; by virtue of existing bilingualism, labels can also be written in French.
The viticulture is strongly limited by the high altitude of the vineyards – only 684 hectares, for a production in 2009 of 22,000 hl of wine (last place in Italy) – which allows the definition of its products as mountain wines. And never definition was more appropriate, especially for those obtained from vines grown up to 1200 m, in the Alta Valle, at the limits of the survival of the vine, with terracing or pergola systems supported by stone columns. Among these the Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle, obtained from priè blanc, is characterized by a very pale straw color, delicate aromas reminiscent of mountain flowers, an accentuated acidity and a rather low alcohol content; this vine is the only Italian vine to have survived the phylloxera, thanks to its natural isolation.
The Valdostano vineyard follows the path of the Dora Baltea, a river that crosses the region, and can be divided into three zones: the Upper Valley, the Central Valley and the Lower Valley.
In addition to the blanc priè, in the first two are grown other native vines, which give a unique imprint to the wines produced, such as the premise, from which is obtained a white wine with soft pink reflections, the fumin and the petit rouge. The beautiful aromaticity of the white muscat of malvoisie or pinot gris, often subject to withering, is expressed respectively in the sweet wines of Chambave Moscato and Nus Malvoisie Flètri.
The Valdostan production has a clear predominance of red wines, and the red grape varieties occupy about 85% of the area under vines. In particular, in the Lower Valley, towards Piedmont, Nebbiolo (here called Picoutener) is highlighted, which gives wines with excellent structure and good longevity, such as the Donnas and the Arnad-Montjovet.
