About the Producer
Bruno Lupin is a winemaker with extensive experience.
His tiny domain in Savoie has risen to become a reference point for exceptional white wine in France’s Alpine Savoie region.
Located in the department of Haute-Savoie, Frangy is a picturesque town dominated by tall Alpine peaks. Bruno’s grandfather started the family’s commercial wine business, selling his bottles in Switzerland. Bruno's sister runs a country inn directly adjacent to the winery. Here the locals gather for a coffee, a glass of wine, or traditional lunch of cheese-based local specialties, including their famous fondue. The lives of the Lupin family are completely woven into the fabric of Frangy.
After his studies in Beaune (Burgundy), Bruno decided take a job as chief winemaker at the Cave de Genève, a very large cooperative in Switzerland. Eventually, Bruno tired of making wines for volume rather than quality and returned to his family estate. Where he now makes just two iconic wines: Frangy and Cuvée du Pépé.

This classic dish highlights the simple pleasures of fresh fish, butter, lemon, and parsley and works beautifully with the freshness of the Frangy! The wine and food are both fairly light in body but full of flavour. The salty butter and capers are complimented by the wine's fresh fruit and vibrant acidity.
