Mont Granier


About Us

With its cliff more than 900 meters high (the highest in Europe!), Mont Granier watches over the valley and the Cluse de Savoie. Guardian of the Chartreuse massif, it is the landmark for locals and visitors from miles around.

Mont Granier is a legendary mountain well known to locals: beyond its emblematic side which dominates the valley, it is also a whole part of the history of Savoie:

On November 24, 1248, the north side of Mount Granier collapsed.
In an immense slide on the waterlogged marls by
the very heavy rains of autumn, the limestone blocks
are carried over several kilometers.
Sixteen villages and hamlets were submerged and a little more than
2 people die.
It is on this scree, an exceptional terroir, that the development
the Abymes (AOP) and Apremont (AOP) vineyards.

These characteristic landscapes, called "abymes" can be discovered at the foot of the mountain.
