Alpine France - Low Intervention - Old Vines
France is the great wine nation - but you won't find Bordeaux or classic Côtes du Rhône here! We head for the foothills of the Alps for far rarer, more interesting bottles.
Beaujolais is the "first hint of the Alps" and the home of fantastic Gamay.
Savoie is in the mountainous areas just south of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) and the border with Switzerland all the way to Lyon and the Rhone valley.
