altitude of 250 to 500 metres between the plains of the Bresse region and the Jura Mountains, and are essentially made of marls. But Jura’s main characteristic lies in its local grapes varieties: Savagnin gives very distinctive white wines with a nutty and spicy character. Jura also produces light reds from Poulsard and deeper styles from Trousseau.

At last, the winemaking: barrel ageing is a specific art in Jura as the oak exalt the whites singularities. The Vin Jaune is a result of this particular ageing process where the wine is aged for at least six years under the flor.

Jura has other specialities: a light sparkling, Cremant du Jura; a desert wine made from dried grapes, Vin de Paille; and a liqueur wine, the MacVin.
