Savoie, also spelled Savoy, is a French department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in eastern France. As a wine region, Savoie consists of many isolated sub-regions and plots of vineyards scattered across four French departments: Savoie, Haute-Savoie, Isère, Ain. Savoie neighbours Switzerland (to the East), the Jura region (to the North) and the little-known Bugey region, which is west across the Rhône river. The climate is continental with alpine and Mediterranean influences. Vines in Savoie are often planted on mountain slopes between 820 ft. and 1804ft. Despite their elevation, Savoie vineyards enjoy a surprisingly warm microclimate due to the southern/south-eastern sun exposure and the moderating effects of nearby rivers and lakes. Apricot, fig, olive and almond trees can share the growing space with vineyards in Savoie. Although the vineyard soils are mostly lime-rich glacial material and scree, there is a great diversity of soil types in Savoie: moraines (glacial deposits), alluvial soils, river terraces (river stone over clay), terraced steep limestone scree slopes, and the molasse basin … Ultimately, Savoie presents an incredible patchwork of soils that came from the epochs that erected the Alps during the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods.

Certified Organic and biodynamic. The objective at Domaine Claud Quenard & Fils is to stimulate the natural defences of the vine by using as low intervention methods of farming as possible. From the use of plants, algae and mineral elements, as well as the minimal use of sulfur and copper in the vineyard, to working closely with the microbial life of their soils, they are leading the way for low intervention wines in the area, of which only a small handful of wineries practice. These styles of viticultural management naturally led them to the study and conversion to biodynamic farming, achieving Demeter certification in 2016.
