Guided visit of: the vineyard, the different grape varieties, local products, wine making techniques. Visit of the wine warehouse, wine tasting. The area is noble and diversed: calcareous clay and stony scree situated at a perfect spot of exposure (south, south-east on the steep hillsides of the Bauges mountains massif).There, the variety of the vines is one of the kind: - L'Altesse: gives the label of Rousette de Savoie. A wine selection is kept in oak barrels. - Le Gamay:from the beaujolais, red and rosé wines, two excellent "thirst-quenching" wines for summer time. - La Roussanne : from Montmélian area, it creates the famous Bergeron wine. A great one: the MONDEUSE NOIRE :vine discovered at the wild stage in the Rhodanian woods and domesticated by the Allobrogues. This is a wine that you drink even when it is young but take a few years to have a stronger tast and even more, to be a vintage.
