Where The Wines Come From


The Jura region, nestled in eastern France near the Swiss border, produces natural wines that reflect the area's rich winemaking history and unique terroir. With vineyards planted on steep slopes and limestone-rich soils, the Jura benefits from a continental climate tempered by the nearby mountains. Here, winemakers embrace traditional and sustainable practices, cultivating grapes with minimal intervention to allow for the purest expression of the land. Indigenous grape varieties such as Savagnin, Trousseau, and Poulsard thrive in this diverse landscape, yielding wines of exceptional complexity and character. From oxidative and nutty Vin Jaune to vibrant and aromatic Crémant du Jura, the region's natural wines showcase a diverse range of styles and flavors, inviting drinkers to explore the distinctive charm of the Jura with each sip.
