The vine Vuillermin, after having risked extinction, is currently cultivated sporadically and almost exclusively in the municipalities of Chambave and Chatillon and in the province of Aosta. This ancient red grape variety was once called Eperon or Spron, now missing names. The Vuillermin seems to be genetically related to the Fumin, although according to recent studies it derived from Prié and has some closeness with Cornalin. The berry is black, medium-small, spherical with solid, waxy, opaque blue skin. The bunch is medium-small, pyramidal, winged, medium compact. The Vuillermin vine gives a deep red purple color wine. The scent is vinous and intense; the taste is full-bodied with good tannins and good structure.
