Vin de Savoie

AOC area for red, rose, white and sparkling wines in the French Savoy wine region. The vineyards, situated at an altitude of 250 to 560 metres above sea level, cover over 1,700 hectares of vineyards on the slopes of the foothills of the Savoy Alps. They are spread over the four departments of Savoie (28 communes), Haute-Savoie (24 communes), Ain (communes of Corbonod and Seyssel) and Isère (commune of Chapareillan). For the latter three, the AOC only applies to red wines. The area is almost identical to the AOC Roussette de Savoie. AOC Vin de Savoie Mousseux applies to bottle-fermented white sparkling wines, AOC Vin de Savoie Pétillant to white sparkling wines.
