DOMAINE SAINT GERMAIN
Raphael is the poster child for craft winemaking! His domaine is based in the village of Saint Pierre d’Albigny at the foot of the Arclusaz mountain, at an altitude of 1,700 feet. It is in this mountainous landscape that Raphael cultivates and produces authentic and sometimes surprising wines using the following local grape varieties: Mondeuse Noire/Blanche or Grise, Persan, Altesse, and Malvosie…
In the heat of the Bassin Belleyssan in the Bugey region the Quinard family has been farmer for 4 generations. Marius built the farm and worked into polyculture farming (with livestock farming, and has a grain grower). His daughter, Denise, took over, and her son Maurice in 1965 orientated the farm production to the viticulture. Sébastien is now in charge since 2007 and brought a new vision to the domaine. Indeed, in 2008 the 14 ha of Chardonnay, Altesse, Gamay, Pinot Noir, Mondeuse, and Molette are converted to the organic farming, with a desire to operate more natural vilification. Today, the domaine produces delicate and authentic wines from the region.
