LOCAL PRODUCE AND SPECIALITES

Various events organised around gourmet food, traditions and savoir-faire take place throughout the year in Ain. Various events offer the unique opportunity to enjoy a convivial environment and share a passion.

The fourth AOC (Controlled Appelation of Origin) label issued to Bugey wines adds to the list of gourmet products found in Ain. Indeed, Comté, Bleu de Gex and of course Bressan chicken are the stars of a whole list of traditional products from this territory. Quenelles in Nantua sauce, Dombes fish, Bugey ramequin... get ready for a flavoursome experience.

Worthy heirs to Jean Anthelme BRILLAT-SAVARIN (1755-1826), gastronomist and author of "The Physiology of Taste", the chefs of Ain promote the region's local produce. Gathered in the Club des Cuisiniers de l'Ain, they are the staunch defenders of good taste. They bring together remarkable skill that does justice to the products.

Welcome to Bugey. A region with many facets and surprises in stall for the visitor. For instance, its wines: nurtured by the climate, the local magic, the vineyard bedecks itself with heavy dark or gilded grapes, whose nectar is the pride and joy of the whole region. Let yourself be enthralled by the story of these wines, now bearing the AOC label.
