Philippe and Sylvain Ravier cultivate 35 hectares of vines in the Savoie appellations of Apremont, Abymes, Chignin and Saint Jean de la Porte. Beginning in 1979 with his parent’s three hectares of vines near their home and winery in the village of Myans, Philippe Ravier expanded his domaine in 1988 with the acquisition of 5 hectares of outstanding Chignin-Bergeron and Mondeuse vineyards. Further additions brought the domaine to its present size in 2014, the year in which Phillipe’s son Sylvain joined the domaine and a new, state of the art winery and cellar was built. The Ravier vineyards are situated on the slopes along the broad valley that runs from Albertville to Chambery along the banks of the Isere River, known as the Combe de Savoie. The Chignin-Bergeron and Mondeuse vineyards are on the south-facing slopes of the Massif des Bauges. On the south side of the valley, the adjacent crus of Apremont and Abymes are located on the slopes created by the catastrophic landslide of the north face of Mont Granier that occurred in 1248, burying the existing villages and their inhabitants. That event reshaped the landscape, creating the Lac St. Andre, hillsides and amphitheaters with limestone scree soils that would later become prized vineyards.

Blend : 100% Gamay
