Welcome to our latest installment of #WinephabetStreet brought to you by Dracaena Wines and Kitchen 330. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I work our way through the wine world one letter each month. We discuss the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.
J is for Jura
The Jura is one of the smallest wine regions in France, at approximately 2,000 ha (almost 5,000 acres). It is located on the far eastern edge of France, sandwiched between Burgundy and the Swiss Alps. In many articles about the region, thanks to its remoteness, the wines are classified as “weird” “obscure” “offbeat” “geeky”or the “missing piece for winelovers.”
