Enjoy Grand Massif skiing and haute cuisine during a French festival of fine food and wine held in Samoëns this January 16-20, 2012.
Skiing, fine food and wine are a natural French combination. This January 16-20th 2012, a select group of private winemakers from all over France will meet in Samoëns to talk about their wines over gourmet meals – and you’re invited! Five-star chalet Ferme du Ciel has put together a luxury accommodation package allowing guests to enjoy all the Winemakers’ Week events in combination with a deluxe ski holiday.
Samoëns is a pretty French ski resort just an hour from Geneva airport that comes alive in a snowy celebration of fine food and wine during its annual Winemakers’ Week – “La Semaine Vigneronne”. Ferme du Ciel guests will have the opportunity to attend a selection of special events focused around matching fine wine and food.
During the week, guest wine producers are specially invited from Alsace, Champagne, Côte du Rhône, Languedoc and Bourgogne. Each evening in the village’s snowy medieval heart, a different winemaker will present their wines in an intimate workshop, explaining the grape varieties, growing and winemaking methods they use. Participants will be able to taste the wines accompanied by complimentary foods such as chocolate, charcuterie, truffles and fois gras. Several local restaurants also host exclusive fine dining evenings with exquisite, multiple course menus tailored to match the wines.
Set in a farming hamlet just outside of Samoëns’ centre, Ferme du Ciel (‘The Farm in the Sky’) is a beautifully renovated 350 year-old barn. The chalet offers a cosy, sophisticated atmosphere just perfect for an indulgent ski break. Great food is an important part of the chalet’s sophisticated package, and their in-house professional chef uses fresh local produce to prepare multiple-course evening meals in harmony with an extensive wine cellar, so guests can continue the fine food and wine experience at the chalet.
