Presentation for your day trip in Savoy:

This day can be organized from 1 to 8 people, ask your destination expert.

Your expert guide of Savoy welcomes you at your hotel in the Chambéry area, for a full-day exploration of the Savoie wines and terroir.

Chambéry is located right in the heart of the French Alps, easily reachable from Geneva or Lyon. The city has been the historical capital of the Savoy region since the 13th-century

​Presentation of the Savoy wines

In the Alps, the age old vineyards that cover the foothills of the spectacular mountain ranges are producing rare wines which are now considered to be amongst the best in France.

Savoy holds the record for the number of grape varieties (23) and Crus (22) in respect of the surface of the vineyards. Eight of our grape varieties are unique to Savoy which produce all types of wine and became the 8th Cremant from France in 2014.

In 2000 the world Sommelier Convention took place in Savoy as well as the national graduate oenologist congress in 2006. In 2008, one of our partners was voted as being one of the best fifteen wine producers in France by the prestigious wine guide Bettane and Desseauve and were awarded a special distinction in 2009. The 25 wine tasters of the famous American wine guide Parker have referenced the Savoy wines... Their comment was “one of the best value for money in the world”

Savoy is also the premier region in France for producing grafted vine plants of the highest quality.

Program of the day:

 Morning : Combe de Savoie

Stunning landscapes facing the Alps and the Mont-Blanc. Your guide proposes a small hike and a visit of the vineyards followed with a wine tasting of rare Savoyard crus, including Mondeuse Blanche and Persan. You are going to discover delicious wines in the cellar of the winemaker, along with the explanations of your private guide from whom you’ll learn a lot about the particularities of these wines.

After this tasting, your guide takes you to a well-known family inn for a traditional Savoy lunch with the following menu:
