Vacations Wine it Up
DISCOVER AN UNEXPECTED PART OF THE ALPS
« Friends are like wine, they get better with time ». We would like to prove this to you and your friends? Savoie is known for a lot of things but not always for its wines!
Often ignored or neglected in favor of wines from more prestigious regions of France, the wines of Savoie are nontheless well appreciated by visitors and by many round the world with the tens of thousands of bottles that are exported each year (that's a lot of parties with friends!).
And yes, Savoie wines are not only for fondue, and the locals will not tell you otherwise!
VINEYARDS FROM SAVOIE TO SWITZERLAND AND INBETWEEN - HAUTE SAVOIE
Here, the vineyards are mainly concentrated in the Chautagne Valley and in the Combe de Savoie, notably in the villages of Apremont and Chignin, where the grape varieties of the same name are found.
Let’s not forget, the vineyards of Jongieux, located on the border between the departments of Savoie and l’Ain, at the northern end of Lake Bourget, which has the particularity to be laid out on rolling fields. Instagrammable guaranteed!
Other breathtaking views, between lake and mountains located on the shores of Lake Geneva, the vineyards of Valais and Vaud are also worth a visit! They are even a part of Unesco landmarks.
PRESTIGIOUS VACATIONS WITH FRIENDS
With friends, discover the most emblematic wines of the region and meet with the local winemakers, who are eager to share their passion and know-how that has sometimes been passed on through generations (over a glass of wine of course).
You will be surprised by the variety of wines, and grapes and their quality. To make your stay easier, count on our private driver to help you fully enjoy your tour of the vineyards and wine tasting. Rather sporty? Then opt for a wine tasting while riding on electric mountain bikes with a sommelier.
DISCOVER, LEARN AND TASTE THE WINES OF THE ALPS
Discover the different techniques of wine making, depending on the particularities of the land where the vines are planted, on the sunshine exposure, on different temperatures that the vines deal with or on the different treatment methods used (organic or not).
From the soil to your glass: we can also organize a trip of a couple of days to learn more about grafting of the plants and their roots at a nursery (Savoie exports the most “pied de vigne” in the world), to tasting wines directly at the wine makers, to pairing food and wine with our sommelier guide.
And to complete your stay, our team will select accommodations to suit everyone needs, in the heart of the vineyards, from spring to the end of fall!
