As you may know, we take a huge amount of time and effort in choosing our wines for our chalets in the Winter season. We are very proud to be using a fantastic partner who provides the majority of our wines, Domaine de L’Idylle. Philippe and Francois Tiollier are two brothers who live and breathe wine-making in the Savoie, and have done so for over 40 years. We buy directly from the vineyard and visit them regularly to try their delicious wines and see what may be suitable for our menus.
Last week, Steve and I, along with my photographer Colette Smith and her husband James went to Domaine de L’Idylle to try out this year’s produce and we also had an amazing tour of the whole of the vineyard, from the actual vines through to where they store the wines until they are mature.
It is a fantastic experience learning how the wines that we put on our table are made.
Here are a few snaps from the trip. Thank you Philippe for putting up with us!
