Frederic Giachino inherited the land in 1998 and turned the area over to grape production, with a strong influence of the traditional Savoyard varieties. He produces a range of organic wines in the Chartreuse Hills on the slopes of Mount Granier. Hand-picked grapes are slowly and gently pressed and held at 5C for a week to 10 days in order to reduce any need for sulphites.
The Domaine Giachino use only natural yeasts which may result in variation from vintage to vintage of the levels of malolactic fermentation. The wine sees whole bunch maceration in stainless steel before being barrel ageing. A blend of Gamay & Mondeuse, the former brings a bright juiciness and the latter more body, texture and chewier tannins.
