For the 9th consecutive year, Samoëns (74 Haute Savoie. ARA) will be celebrating good French food and well-being at its Samoëns Winegrowers Week (la Semaine Vigneronne) which combines skiing and wine and food !! ( albeit not at the same time!) 16 – 20 January 2020. The village plays host to almost 20 winegrowers who share the results of the job they are so passionate about.
Located just one hour from Geneva and 1h30 from Lyon, the village resort of Samoens enjoys a great location in the heart of the French Alps. An ideal place for winter sports, Samoëns is also appreciated for the surrounding scenery. The Septimontain life offered by this friendly village is ideal for recharging your batteries and re-energising. Savoie’s vineyards have not always had a reputation for quality ….This is a winegrowing area with its own identity, its own local grape varieties such as Jacquere and Altesse, and vignerons who work hard to reflect all that their terroir has to give. The region borders Switzerland and Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) See Haute Savoie
