Château-Chalon vineyard, Jura, France


This photo was taken from the wonderful little town of Château-Chalon in Jura (region of Franche-Compté, France) which has an amazing setting on the hill overlooking this plain... The vineyards of the Jura are spread over 1 850 hectares, spread over four geographical Appellations d'Origine Contrôlée (Arbois, Côtes du Jura, l'Etoile, Château-Chalon). Château Chalon is the oldest and most famous of the Jura AOCs. This single hilltop of just 50 hectares is home to the unique Vin Jaune ("Yellow wine").
