Bourg-En-Bresse

I am headed to Georges Blanc and Bresse for some chicken. Does anyone have a recommendation regarding any local wineries of distinction? I won't have the opportunity to drive 1.5 hours north to Burgundy - it needs to be something more local. Also, there doesn't seem to me much of interest in Bresse itself (apart from the churches), so any recommendations of places to visit while there would be appreciated.

Thanks.

    Cluny, less than an hour's drive away, is breath-taking. Very good Saturday morning market too.
    Another lovely vilage, somewhat near and on the same route is Fuissé, which has many vineyards around.

      You sure you don't want to head to Macon and get some Beaujolais crus?

        My thoughts. The northern Beaujolais villages are a half hour from Bourg and are minutes apart from each other.
