    Jura & Savoie

    Jura Ins & Outs with Wink Lorch

    Jura Ins & Outs with Wink Lorch

    Abstract:

    The tiny wine region of Jura in eastern France has leapt to fame in the last five years with its wines finally appearing on export markets around the world.

    Famous in its home country for its unique Vin Jaune, the region produces an extraordinary diversity of wine styles from pale reds, through minerally dry whites to oxidative whites, sparkling, sweet and fortified, all from just five grape varieties.

    Wink Lorch, the author of the definitive book on the region, Jura Wine, will explain how this myriad of wine styles has evolved through the ages, along with discussing the varieties, the terroir and comparisons with its close neighbour, Burgundy.

    She will also reveal the basics of making, serving and tasting the unusual Vin Jaune and why the Jura has become the one of the go-to regions for those seeking authentic, organic wines.

    For over 25 years she has taught, entertained and written about wines of the world, contributing to many books and journals.
