Delicious Mountain Wines

Our chalet wines & the stories behind them

Great wine has always been part of the experience which we offer our guests at Delicious Mountain. But this year we've taken it to the next level. Over the summer months, we have gone to the wine producers directly, in search of the perfect wine selection for our guests.

Sourced Directly from the Growers

Having travelled widely across France to meet the producers and taste the wines at source, we have composed a wine list for the 2016-17 season which we think is our best yet.

In each case these are small, independent growers farming just a few hectares of lovingly-nurtured vines. In each case, the grapes these vines yield are organic and/or biodynamically farmed.
