The estate, which has been family-owned for six generations, is located in the heart of the Beaujolais region in the communes of Le Perréon and Vaux-en-Beaujolais "Clochemerle", near Mont Brouilly.
The family cultivates 5 ha (i.e. a production of about 30,000 bottles) of vines in the Beaujolais-Villages appellation, on hillsides with a south, south-east exposure. Our soils are granitic.
The vines are trained in "gobelet": pruning reserved for Beaujolais-Villages and Crus du Beaujolais.
All the grapes are harvested by hand, and all the wines are bottled at the property.
The estate produces Beaujolais Blanc and Crémant de Bourgogne from Chardonnay.
The rare Gamay Noir grape variety with white juice is used to make Beaujolais-Villages Rosé, Beaujolais-Villages Red and, since 2007, a sparkling rosé wine of the "ancestral method".
The particularity of the estate is that Régine and Jean-Luc Rongère produce their vines in "integrated production" (since 1987) out of respect for the heritage and the environment. This consists of a set of cultivation practices aimed at obtaining healthy, quality grapes and wine by limiting human intervention in the entire ecosystem.
