Domaine Giachino was created in 1998 when Frédéric took over the 1.5-hectare family estate from his grandfather. Later joined by his brother David, they progressively enlarged the estate to 9 hectares and enriched their vineyards with new grape varieties particular to their area of the Savoie. They made a switch to natural and organic methods in 2006. The vineyards of Domaine Giachino are in Savoie, not far from Chambéry, on the hillsides of Mont Granier. The soils are moraine, clay and limestone; a specific geology to the area and source of the uniqueness of their delicious organic wines.
An elegant and fresh mountain wine made with mostly Gamay, and a smaller part of the alpine variety Mondeuse which is an ancestor of Syrah. The Mondeuse provides a typically dark and spicy edge to what is otherwise a relatively light and juicy wine. Brimming with alpine freshness, green touches and an almost tart palate, the gentle tannins frame it beautifully. Enjoy with meat dishes or on its own, slightly chilled.
