Creation of Ets LORON Louis et Fils.
Family business specialized in Traditional Method production and more particularly in Crémant de Bourgogne, designation created since 1975.
LORON Louis et Fils are the only ones in Beaujolais to produce traditional sparkling wines. From father to son for 4 generations, they were founded by Charles LORON in 1932.
Charles LORON farms small plots of vineyards in Fleurie.
"His employee, from Champagne, suggested that he create champagne-like rosé wines in small quantities."
Charles LORON experimented with the method, the results were encouraging and the story of sparkling Beaujolais wines began.
The second Louis Loron generation, named Lili, took over after the second world war. He developed the activity in a small location. The concept was well-accepted, service for winegrowers developed and direct sales to individuals began.
Fernand Loron, the 3rd generation, took over the company at the end of the 80s, after having begun working with his father in 1963.
In 1990, the company grew with an expansion of the premises and modernization of the disgorgement chain.
Everything had been done by hand before:
Bottle rippling, disgorgement... From then on, individual customers and services increased substantially.
