Delicious funky red wine from the mountains. The strange Persan variety is hardly heard of in the UK yet can make for delicious wine. The origins of the grape are uncertain, however some ampelographers have linked the variety to the even lesser known Étraire de la Dui, also found in the Savoie and even Pinot Noir and Syrah. However DNA testing have shown it be the same grape as Bécuet grown in the Susa valley of Piemonte and one of the main grapes of the region’s local wine Ramié. All not telling us much in terms of the way it tastes however a little back ground history is often quite intriguing we always find! So try this wine, let us tell you, it tastes great, not in any way weird and a combinations of fresh summer pudding fruits and that authentic natural twist and minerality you always get with the wines of Giachino make for a delicious glass.

Domaine Giachino was created in 1998 when Frédéric took over the 1,5 hectares family estate from his grandfather Marius Genton.

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. Their values and philosophy made a switch to natural and organic methods inevitable and this they did 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.
