In Franche-Comté and Haute-Saône, local products are very presents in our gastronomy.
Wine is an essential product in "comtoise"culture. It increased a lot during the 18th century. Vineyards were planted everywhere it could grow. At this time, Haute-Saône was the first vineyard producer in Franche-Comté with 20 000 hectares !
The territory of Haute-Saône has a good soil for cereals and orchards. In Fougerolles, you will find the Griottine, a special cherry. In Villersexel, because of the Phylloxéra disease, we do not have vineyard anymore. Now you will find cherry plums.
Honey is also very famous in Franche-Comté. The different places offer various flavours.
