Jura - French Wine
The Jura was formerly a large, important
wine region, but today there are less than 4,700
acres of vineyards — a fraction of the former total. Its
wines are not well known outside the region, but are
noted for their quality and uniqueness; three local varieties,
Savagnin, Trousseau and Poulsard (known locally
as Plousard), are grown nowhere else in France.
