an exceptional territory
The geographical area of production of Walnuts from Grenoble covers the departments of Isère, Drôme and Savoie, along the Isère valley. It is in these extended landscapes between plains and hills, offering an alpine climate up to 800m of altitude, that the walnut draws its taste, its freshness and its virtues.
Three varieties of nuts from our region are grown: mayette, franquette and Parisienne.
recognized ancestral know-how
The conditions of the geographical production area, the expanses of walnut groves along the Isère as well as the know-how of the nut growers who today combine modernity and respect for the environment and traditions make the Noix de Grenoble a production emblematic of our territory.
The Noix de Grenoble was the first fruit in history to obtain an AOC, today a PDO. The official recognition of the quality of the walnuts of Grenoble, guarantors of a history, of an ancestral know-how dates from 1938!
