Bugey: Wine land

The Bugey region,

is located in the Ain department and rests on the first foothills of the southern Jura mountains. It is bordered by the slopes along the right bank of the Rhône river, facing the panoramic Alps.

The Bugey wine-growing region has the hot summers of a semi-continental climate.

This region is a well-kept secret because it covers only 500 hectares,
divided into three production areas: Cerdon, Montagnieu and Belley.


the Gamay, Pinot, Poulsard grape varieties, as well as Chardonnay and Roussette, cover nearly 500 ha.

There we find white wines: Chardonnay and Roussette, as well as red and rosé wines made from Gamay, Pinot and Mondeuse.
The appellation also produces Traditional Method Bugey wines, along with Cerdon, sparkling wines made according to the ancestral method.
