Mount Granier and the vineyards of Savoie

Last day of our long trekking weekend in Savoie. We drove back through the vineyards of Savoie, in the shadow of mount Granier - a mountain that we can see all the way from Lyon on a clear day. Here we were right up against it. Oh yes, we also picked up some bottles of Savoie wine from the gold-medal winning vineyard of the region (Domaine Philippe Chapot).

Church with Mount Granier right behind it. You can see it peeping out on the right. Unfortunately I couldn't find a better angle, one that makes the mountain loom behind the church, which was what I was looking for. You'll have to take my word for it, that it looms right behind, if you move to the left or right (but then you don't get the church :-( )
