Savoie vineyards, a place to rediscover

Vineyards on gentle slopes or more dull, at the foot of mountains, rivers... The vineyards of Savoie are located in exceptional landscapes.

The Savoyard vineyard is almost exclusively located on stony soils resulting from erosion. Some plots are planted on shale soils, as in Cevins. The terroir of the Abymes and Apremont wines, south of Chambéry, was recently planted from the 14th century. Appellattions are AOP Savoie the main one, AOP Roussette de Savoie and AOP Seyssel the most exclusive.

16 million bottles are produced each year in this not negligible vineyard exported 5% abroad but consumed mostly locally. Wines from 25 grape varieties giving this vineyard a unique diversity.
