Located between lakes and mountains, the vineyards of the Savoie region are a hidden alpine treasure. Fans of adventure can join tour operator 1786.travel on exciting trips to discover these stunning landscapes.
Breathtaking scenery awaits travellers keen to explore Savoie in all its winemaking splendour on this three-night and four-day trip.
With a host of iconic wines, and over 20 different grape varieties grown on the slopes of the alpine mountains, the region boasts a strong identity and a dual culture as a mountain and winemaking region. Over the course of the trip visitors are completely immersed in the local viticulture and oenology during day trips to four wine estates and cellars across the different vineyards.
From vines planted with Chignin and Apremont, to plots of Jongieux and the Combe de Savoie wine route, each excursion is a chance to meet with and chat to winemakers during a wine tasting session. Perfect opportunities for the vine-growers to explain with passion their special know-how and the terroirs that they cultivate throughout the year.
Each day trip includes lunch in a typical Savoyard restaurant, where a taste sensation awaits. Diners can look forward to sampling a local cuisine that showcases the depth of alpine gastronomy, alongside the diverse fruity and floral aromas of the region’s wines.
The accommodation is as exciting as the activities on this wine trip! In a picture postcard setting at the foot of the Massif des Bauges mountain range, Château des Allues offers elegant rooms that open onto the fresh mountain air and the sweet scent of the vines. The perfect chance to experience a simple, yet authentic, slice of château life!
