Chambave

Description

The town's name probably derives from the personal name "Cambo" or "camb" (curved) or from "campus aquae". It is a town located at just over 480 meters above sea level, on the sunny hills, a few miles from Saint Vincent. The territory is vast and made up several districts surrounded by vineyards, thanks to the favorable climate and low rainfall, in the area high quality wines such as Moscato di Chambave are produced, known since the XV century and valued at national and international levels. This wine couples divinely with the excellent local food products and over the centuries it has often been the subject of historical citations: it seems that some barrels of Muscat had been donated to Bona of Bourbon, mother of Amadeus VIII of Savoy.
The area was inhabited since remote times: witness are the traces of mining activities of the Iron Ages found in the area of Mont Tsailloun, bordering with Pontey. The Romans have left signs of their presence all over the territory, giving their names to the settlements and works, such as the consular road that passed just above the village, of which remains a milestone in front of the Parish church. Historical data shows that the original village was located further West, but a landslide destroyed the village and it was rebuilt where it currently is. During the medieval period the village was under the jurisdiction of the lords of Cly dominant on a large fief that includes, in addition to Chambave, Saint Denis, the whole Valtournenche, Verrayes, Antey Saint Andre, Torgnon, Diemoz.
