Alpine France - Vegan/Vegetarian - Cement cuves

Alpine France - Vegan/Vegetarian - Cement cuves

France: You're exploring the French Alps, Savoie, Beaujolais and the Jura wines
Vegetarian: All our Alpine Wines are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. None of our winemakers use fining products of animal origin, nor egg protein.
A few are even Vegan certified
Cement tanks with enamel coating were once very common, but went out of fashion in favour of steel and plastic composite tanks. They're still widely found in traditional cellars in Beaujolais and Switzerland but until recently people did not put them in new cellars. They are coming back in fashion for their thermal insulator effect, for "low intervention" winemaking.

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.

You can explore the wines below or read further about Savoie or Beaujolais
