Renardat-Fâche Bugey Cerdon
Alain Renardat, though technically retired for years, is active as ever. Along with his son Elie, they make their Cerdon using the technique of méthode ancestrale (as opposed to Méthode Champenoise plain old carbonation, the preferred method used for supermarket wines).
The Renardat family has been cultivating their vineyards in Bugey village for more than eight generations. The vineyards themselves have been part of the village since the Middle Ages.
