Not far from Burgundy lies Jura, a strikingly beautiful area renowned for its alpine landscapes and remarkable wines. Home to what is essentially a continental climate, you can find all types of wines here - many of which have been on the lips of critics and wine enthusiasts the world over, which has seen the region have a bit of a surge in popularity in recent years. The terroir offers indigenous specialty varietals like Trousseau, Poulsard – which accounts for more than half of the wine production here - and perhaps most notably Savagnin (not to be confused with Sauvignon) – which is used to make the Fino-esque Vin Jaune (or yellow wine), Jura’s cherished local wine that can be traced all the way back to the 1500s.
Not far from Burgundy lies Jura, in the north of the region sits the stunning town of Arbois. You can find all sorts of wine here, but more than half of the production is red and Poulsard is by far the most important grape - and is somewhat of a local institution.
