Romans mentioned wines from the Savoie as early as 25 BC. It is predominantly a region for white wine (70%). Vineyards in the Savoie are spread throughout mountains, foothills and valleys. This complex network of terroirs benefits from a continental climate with Alpine and maritime influences and surprisingly warm microclimates because of the south/southeast sun exposure and the moderating effects of rivers and lakes.

Sylvain Liotard started 13 Lunes in 2014. The 14-acre property sits at the foothills of Mount Granier at an altitude of 3,553 feet. Sylvain’s farm is certified organic and biodynamic and his winemaking is based on minimal intervention practices. He produces six wines under the following appellations: Abymes, Apremont, Roussette de Savoie, Vin de Savoie (white and red) and a red Vin de France.

 
The 2018 Ami-Amis is a blend of a third each of Altesse, Veltliner, and Jacquere. The fruit is direct pressed over 4 hours by stainless steel pneumatic press. The juice is racked  after 12 to 48 hours, depending on the temperature at which the grapes were brought in. Contiguous alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are by indigenous yeasts in temperature controlled vats at 17°C.  The wine is matured for 10 months, 20% in barrels of at least 2 years, 80% in staineless steel vats.
