Persan Domaine Giachino, biodynamic wine, low sulphur wine, rare grape from the Savoie, medium body, dry, berry fruits, subtle spice, ideal for Apline foods. The rare Persan variety is hardly heard of in the UK yet can make 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.   Try this rare wine, let us tell you, it tastes great, uniquely mountainous somehow, with charcuterie, Diots, Game, strong cheese, anything remotely connected to the Alpes, it will work.

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.
