Savoie Wine

Vin de Savoie is an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) situation in the Alps. The wines from this region are predonimantly white. Approved grapes include: Chardonnay, Roussane, Chasselas, Jacquère, and Altesse Verdesse. There is very little red production with grapes such as Gamay, Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir. The reds produced here tend to be extremely fruity and light. It is also the former home of the Douce Noir grape, which was destroyed by Phylloxera but later reappared in California as Charbono and in Argentina as Bonarda.
