Franche-Comté is the regional IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) that covers red, white and rosé wines (still or sparkling) from a large, mountainous area of eastern France. Surrounded by Bourgogne, Savoie and Alsace, these wines are rustic reminders of varieties and styles from the distant past.
The Franche-Comté region – one of 27 official regions of France – is located on the border of Switzerland. The wine region of Alsace is to the north, while the vineyards of Savoie occupy the Alps to the south.
Hoke Harden will be your guide and sommelier. He is a Certified Specialist of Wine, attended the FWS Master Program for Vins de
Provence and the Maison de Rosé, is a US Ambassador for Pineau des Charentes, and a BNIC Certified Cognac Educator.
