Dominique Belluard


Domaine Belluard, Savoy


This vineyard in the heart of the Savoy region takes its ground on ten hectares of the village of Ayse since 1947. Dominique is now the third generation of his family to farm and harvest one of the oldest Alps vineyards, enjoying the unique grapes that still grow there, such as Gringet. Domaine Belluard is a leading biodynamic producer in the Savoy. Dominique Belluard farms his vineyard organically, refuses pesticides as well as herbicides and is very careful not to use additives during the winemaking processes.

 

"Today, for the best typicality of the wines, the main concern of the domain is to grow vines according to the biggest respect of terroirs and traditions"  - Dominique Belluard
