In 2012, two wine-growing areas in Savoie joined the group of ‘Vignobles & Decouvertes’ approved sites. A great accolade for these two destinations which have skilfully combined tourism and wine culture.
Coeur de Savoie
Cœur de Savoie is an area which stretches approximately thirty kilometres between Chambéry and Albertville.
Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) vineyards which grow unique grape varieties such as Mondeuse, Jacquère and Altesse line the hillsides in the Bauges and Chartreuse mountain ranges, offering visitors splendid countryside to behold.
In addition to the wealth of natural and built heritage, the area also offers a wide selection of wine-based activities and tourist sites.Discover
