Savoie ("sav-wah") is a little-known wine producing region in France borderd by Switzerland to the east and produces both red and white wines based on local, indigenous grapes including Jacquère (jah-kehr) from the cru of Aprémont - marked by its steeply sloped vineyards. Founded in 1853, Gilbert Perrier and his son are the fifth and sixth generation to make wine in this Alpine region. Sustainable
Sustainable viticulture is the journey of continually improving one's ability to minimize farming's environmental and social footprints by avoiding the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides in order to to promote soil health, with an ethos that also takes into account energy use, water use, farm biodiversity, climate change and worker welfare and safety are issues.
