Discover the Jura appellations
The Jura vineyard may be one of the smallest vineyards you'll find in France, with only 2000 hectares producing 82,000 hectoliters of wine per year, but this 80 kilometers long stretch of land is incredibly rich. Located at 200-450 meters of altitude, this vineyard is one of the oldest in the country, since Pliny the Younger (62-144 AD) was already mentioning its many qualities, back when the Roman Empire occupied the region.
The Chardonnay dominates this clay, limestone and marls soil, but there is also some Savagnin (used in the famous yellow wine from Jura, after a long vinification process), Pinot Noir, Trousseau or Ploussard. If we take a closer look at the appellations produced in the region, we can see names like Arbois, Côtes-du-Jura, Crémant-du-Jura, Château-Chalon, and many more.
