Our cuisine will allow you to rediscover flavors and aromas, recalling memories of feelings lost in the folds of time, that only the senses are able to awaken.
HISTORY AND ENHANCEMENT OF THE PRODUCT ARE THE BASIS, THE COMBINATIONS, THE METHOD.
Tradition is at the root of our cuisine.
Our recipes are derived from mountain dishes from Valle d’Aosta. The Champorcher Valley has always been difficult to cultivate, a territory that has fed its peasantry with simple yet nutritious products: chestnuts, rye, potatoes, toma cheese. The cuisine, since ancient times, sees the use of plants and wild flowers: from ajucche (herb) to pine buds, from wild blueberries to dog roses.
TRADITION AND HISTORY
The origins of our cuisine
Our family is made up of travelers and explorers. This pushes us to look for new combinations, combining the mountains with flavors that come from all over the world. Have you ever tasted elderflowers in batter with chestnut honey and turmeric, or potato gnocchi with leeks, saffron and Timut pepper?
THE HISTORY OF OUR FAMILY
A journey into the past
A past of hard work and stories is a pleasure to share. This is how history joins the Moulin Restaurant. The wood, the stone, the sawmill, the ancient walls of the mill, the recovered furniture, the inherited crockery, and the Damask tablecloths, all tell the story of grandparents driving taxis in Paris or working among the Swiss vineyards, of aunts in the service of Hemingway, and Franciscan uncles on a mission.

WINE CELLAR AND WINE LIST
The choice of wines
As an Agritourism, our wine list is comprised only of wines from Valle d’Aosta. We are always looking for new products, innovative or traditional, natural or conventional.
Wine is a sensory journey that is revealed with every sip;
Wine is a pleasure as much as it responds to the taste of those who drink it;
Wine is a story that the most curious can let themselves be told.
In our wine list you will find labels that correspond exactly to these characteristics: quality, curiosity, and character.
