About the producer

Located at the foothills of the Bauges massif, and bordering neighbouring Switzerland and Valle d’Aosta in Italy, the organically farmed vineyards of Domaine Adrien
Berlioz in the Savoie region are as picturesque as you might imagine. Adrien took over the family vineyards in 2006, two hectares located near a small village called
Chignin at 390m above sea level. With plenty of hard work alongside the pursuit of purity and a certified biodynamic approach to farming, he has grown the vineyard
to 5 hectares, transforming it into one of the region’s most prestigious domaines.

Its vineyard is characterized first of all by an extreme slope (sometimes 50% declination), on a soil of hard rock and limestone. The grape varieties are typical of
Savoie: Jacquère, Altesse, Malvasia, Bergeron (roussanne), Mondeuse and Persian, all grown without chemical inputs. In the cellar, Adrien vinifies the wines without
sulfur and uses different vessels. The results are evident in the incredible mineral drive, intensity and purity of these wines, sure to leave a lasting impression of just
how good Savoie wines can be!
