Across the whole of the AOC Bugey wine production area, which covers almost 30km, around 60 winegrowers, restaurant owners, hosts, heritage sites, event organisers and leisure activity providers have all been awarded the Vineyards & Discoveries label.
They all meet the strict requirements to receive this national quality label.
Each of them will gladly invite you into their world, demonstrate their expertise, and introduce you to the terroir and its history.
