An Alpine Vineyard
The Vignoble de la Pierre is an 11-hectare (= 27-acre) vineyard in Tormery, one of the seven hamlets of the village of Chignin in Savoie.
All of our vines are located on Tormery’s hillside, on the slopes of the « Savoyarde » mountain which peaks at 1 135 meters above sea level.
The Savoyarde’s profile paints the portrait of a woman dressed in traditional costume and headdress. Tormery’s Rock – its official name – is the limestone foothills of the Bauges mountains.
We cultivate seven grape varieties:
- Five white grape varieties: Jacquère, Roussanne, Altesse, Velteliner, Verdesse
- Two red varieties: Mondeuse, Pinot Noir
80% of our production is composed of white wines, 20% of red wines.
All of our wines are classified with the French Appellation d’Origine Protégée (AOP) since 1973 and for each of them, we claim the Chignin geographic mention, an added token of quality.
