Wine of the Week - Gérald Dubrieul Bugey Cerdon Sec

Part of the joy of a holiday is that you have license to eat and drink all day as you celebrate. While this sounds like a good idea in theory, in practice, overindulging can really slow you down. That's where low-alcohol wine comes in - and we've got a delicious one that can carry you through a full day of celebration (moderation on the food side is up to you). The Gerald Dubreuil Bugey Cerdon Sec is a low-alcohol sparkling wine made by méthode ancestrale, which is a traditional way of making the lightly sparkling, medium sweet wine. Made from 100% Gamay, the Cerdon is full of lively red fruit aromas with a delicate mousse.

The Dubreuil family has been growing vines in Bugey for three generations. Gérald’s grandfather, Victor, was one of the first in the area to produce Cerdon using the méthode ancestrale. Starting with only 0.5 hectares, within three generations, the family has acquired seven hectares of land in Poncin, a small village between Lyon and Geneva.
