Savoie and Bugey wines: organic, biodynamic and natural selection
Wines of Savoie
Located in the east of France, from the Alps to Lake Geneva, the Savoyard vineyard is composed of 4 departments: Savoie, Haute-Savoie, Ain and Isère. The climate is rather difficult with a lot of rain and little sun. The Savoyard grape varieties are therefore adapted to this continental climate. Mostly white grape varieties are found: Jaquère, Bergeron, Roussette, Gringet and Chasselas. For the reds, we find the Gamay, Mondeuse or Pinot Noir grapes. A new generation of talented winemakers is now offering light, fruity natural wines, sometimes marked by minerality.
The Bugey vineyard is a small region located east of Lyon. The climate is more oceanic with hot summers and cold winters. The heterogeneity of the soils and sub-soils allows a great diversity among the Bugey wines. These are wines from terroirs that are quite different from one another.
