Jura lies due east of Burgundy. Savoie is in the Alpine region of France, close to the Swiss border and the city of Geneva.
These wonderful, little-known regions are more and more on the radar these days. A wide range of wine from Savoie’s delicate whites, Jura’s complex Chardonnays and Savagnins, fine Crémants and fresh reds are winning new fans as they become more available. Enjoy an evening in the company of a Crémant and a still wine as we explore some of their vinous treasures.
