Jura Who's Who

Names You Need To Know
With Wink Lorch
Thursday Mar 9 2017


Tissot, Overnoy, Puffeney, Macle… These are the producer names that have been on Jura aficionados’ lips since the little eastern French region started emerging onto export markets.

But, they are far from the only winemakers who matter there, and even with these, there’s more to their story than their name on the label suggests.

Join us for a delve into history looking at the people who made Jura what it is today along with a glance at who’s making waves and why.
