A good wine to delight the palate 

Nobody says no to a wine from Jura or Bugey. Jura's vineyards have a few wonderful surprises in store. For example, the the two grape varieties used in white wine, chardonnay and savagnin, won't fail to regale your tastebuds. For a truly original flavour, try the slightly oxidised vin jaune (yellow wine) for an experience you'll never forget. There are many craft breweries where you can try some unique and original beers! Last but not least, for a pre-dinner or after-dinner drink, impress your friends with an exceptional absinthe from Pontarlier. Rest assured, there are also plenty of excellent non-alcoholic beverages to choose from, such as Elixia lemonade or Rième pine syrup. We just know you'll love them!
