It’s a serious business, choosing wine for our chalet guests. We use a specialist supplier called Verre Gourmand whose job it is to taste, taste and taste some more, in order to choose their very favourite wines from producers all around the world. Their huge range is then whittled down to provide us with a selection that they think will suit us and our guests.
Now it’s our turn! We work with our Verre Gourmand sommelier to handpick the 18 reds, whites and sparkling wines that we will serve to our guests. We have new tastings each winter and listen carefully to our guests’ feedback.
It doesn’t stop there… The next stage is during staff training: the chefs and hosts get together with our sommelier to discuss their menus, taste the wines and choose made-in-heaven matches for all the dishes on the menu during the week.
You’ll have your pick of 2 proseccos, 2 whites and 2 reds to help yourselves to during your stay. This is alongside the bottled beers and soft drinks that are readily available in the complimentary bar.
Each day, your host will serve the paired wines that the chef and sommelier have chosen to accompany the dishes on the menu. They’ll include bottles from all over France as well as other famous areas in Europe and the New World.
