Twil's regional suggestions for Jura
Top of the list: the Straw Wine, made from grapes that have been plucked at full ripeness and dried in a special manner to produce a strong, sweet juice. It is then matured in casks for several years until it takes on amber tones that evoke honey, orange or even caramel. Another local speciality whose originality has won over the most refined palates is the Yellow Wine. Its subtle walnut flavour (produced by the Savagnin grape, which is found nowhere else) and a very special winemaking process make this an original wine that keeps well. Located at altitudes of 250–400 m, the vineyards lie along the Jura Mountains, and they are well worth a detour if you are visiting neighbouring Burgundy.
