The history of the place
Amédée VII of Savoie, known as “the Red Count”, was born in 1360 and died in 1391 in Ripaille. This nickname was due to the fact that he was the only one wearing red clothes when he was taking part in a tournament.
Nowadays you can visit the Château de Ripaille and taste its white wine or its "Red Count" cuvée.
The building was built in 1954 with its special façade and the famous knight towering the Place des Arts.
