Jura & Savoie
The vineyards of the Jura and Savoie produce some of the most strikingly original wines in France. They are steeped in tradition and relatively unknown outside of their homeland but some fine and very diverse styles are produced. The Jura is more marked by rolling hills than high mountains. The Savoie by contrast offers a magnificent backdrop with the Alps in the background.
Among the grapes used Jura and Savoie wines are Savagnin, Trousseau, Jacquère, Mondeuse, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
