Wink Lorch*, wine writer, wrote this for those who haven’t yet discovered Jura:
« Hidden between Burgundy and Switzerland, you will discover magnificent landscapes, beautiful villages in bloom in the summer, and an open, warm-hearted welcome. You can also enjoy the regional cuisine of which cheese is a major feature and an amazingly rich variety of authentic wines ».
