Description

After years hidden away in the craggy mountains, wines from Savoie and Bugey are now offered in restaurants and wine stores worldwide.

This book tells the story of the men and women who make these characterful wines, how they have tamed the steep hillsides to grow the vines and mastered their unusual grape varieties.

Until now, there has been a dearth of information on the wines from these mountain regions. Alongside 120 producer profiles, Wines of the French AIps summarizes the appellations, terroir, grapes, winegrowing and winemaking, and looks into the history that has brought these wines to the finest tables.

Wink Lorch, award-winning author of Jura Wine, has driven across numerous Alpine passes and climbed countless steep vineyards to explore Savoie and its neighbouring wine regions - Bugey and Isère, and, further south, Hautes-Alpes and the Diois, home of Clairette de Die. From her travels she shares tips on places to stay, eat and shop, and off ers a taste of the most distinctive French Alpine cheeses, local foods and drinks.

An essential handbook for wine loyers and professionals wishing to learn more about the wines and explore the vineyards 0f Savoie, Bugey and beyond.
