The name Savoie comes from a Latin term meaning the country of fir trees – of which this Alpine region certainly has plenty.
Delicious food deserves to be accompanied with good wine. Our Reberty chalets serve only the best!
We have selected our wines from one particular vineyard called Domaine de L’Idylle. This family-run operation not only reflects Powder N Shine’s ethos, but each of their wines is excellent and very versatile – perfect for matching with our dinners.
Local wines of the Savoie region are not that well known outside of France and, for many people, their only experience of these wines is likely to have been when they were on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. There are some excellent wines to be found locally here, though it should be noted that the grape varieties found in this region are absolutely unique, so it may take some time to familiarise palettes accustomed to the Cabernet Sauvignons, Pinot Noir, Shiraz / Syrah to the tastes of these wines.
We currently serve the following wines:
Cruet Vieille Vignes (2009), Arbin Mondeuse (2009), Pinot Noir (2009). We also have a selection of non Savoie wines including Malbec, Bordeaux, Pessac Leognan and Chablis, including a fantastic Champagne readily available in the chalet called Francois Fagot.
For those of you who prefer beer, who have this available in our chalets along with soft drinks including Orangina, Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Sprite and Tonic Water.
Vodka and Gin are available in the chalets in teh honesty bar, which you are welcome to purchase. If you are interested in any other spirits, please do let us know prior to your arrival and we can ensure that there are in the chalet available for you.
