Discover the Savoie Mont Blanc wine route

Follow the tourist routes criss-crossing lakes and mountains and discover the diverse range of prestigious Savoie wines. An unsung hero for many years, Savoie wine now vies with the best of them and is served at the most prestigious restaurants. 

The area has three wine routes.  One lies to the north of Lake Bourget, taking in Chautagne and Jongieux wines.
