Jura

Appellations

In the north of the region of Jura 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.
Not far from Burgundy lies the appellation of Jura, a strikingly beautiful area renowned for its alpine landscapes and remarkable wines. Home to what is essentially a continental climate, the terroir of Jura offers indigenous varietals like Poulsard, Trousseau, and perhaps most notably Savagnin – which is used to make Vin Jaune, Jura’s cherished local wine that can be traced all the way back to the 1500s.
