The outlines of Savoie vineyards history
According to some sources, growing of vine on the territory of this region started in the Antiquity. But it's in the Middle Ages that the winemaking developed thanks to the knowledge and hard work of the monks. The wine quality has also improved during this period. Then, during several centuries, vineyards expanded rapidly and at a certain moment we were talking about overproduction, up to the middle of the XVIII century. At this moment the 1789 Revolution had a positive impact on the development of Savoie region vineyards. In 1860 Savoie region became part of France and in 1877 the phylloxera pest caused a significant damage. Despite this scourge, the vineyards managed to recover, especially after the Second World War. Today, they cover more than 2000 hectares and groups 25 grape varieties, such as Jacquère, Roussanne, Pinot Noir, Mondeuse and Chardonnay.
