Jura is one of the smallest wine regions in France. Its vineyard is located in the Massif de Jura, a group of mountains that cross the department with the same name from northeast to southwest, and which is part of the historic Franche-Comté region.
The climate in Jura is semi-continental, from a wine-growing point of view similar to those of Burgundy, Alsace or Champagne
Jura has five main grape varieties authorized for wines with AOC (appellation of origin). Savagnin and Chardonnay whites as well as Poulsard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir inks.
Of the six designations of origin of the wine that we can find in Jura, four are of a geographical nature. These are: AOC Côtes du Jura, AOC Arbois, AOC L'Étoile and AOC Château-Chalon, and the other two are for specific wine styles, AOC Crémant du Jura and AOC Macvin du Jura.
