Caveau Savoyard was founded in 1853, currently run by the seventh generation of the Perrier family. The domaine has slowly expanded over the generations, and today is the largest estate vineyard in the region with 62 hectares of vines. Vineyard work is sustainable; grapes are hand-harvested and gently vinified in stainless steel tanks.
SAVOIE || Located in the foothills of the Alps, Savoie neighbors Jura (north), Switzerland (east), and Bugey (west across the Rhône). Most vineyards are planted between 800-1800 feet - despite the elevation (and alpine environment), southern sun exposure and the moderating effects of nearby rivers and lakes create a warmer microclimate. The region spans just under 5,000 acres (2000 ha) and is dominated by limestone soils, but there is quite a bit of diversity across the small appellation.
