About the producer

Eric and Bérengère Thill live in the village of Trenal, close to the commune of Gevingey where their vines are planted. They settled in Jura a decade ago seeking
opportunities to grow and make wine that were unatainble to them in Eric’s native Alsace. The pair began making wine in 2009 with just 2.8ha of grapes (their
holdings have since grown to 7ha) Growing traditional Jura grape varieties including Chardonnay, Savagnin, Pinot Noir and Poulsard; it was certified organic by
Ecocert in 2015.

The vineyards are on a variety of different soil types from Bajocien limestone to the fabled grey, red and blue marl. Through the vineyards that Eric and Bérengère
work with have always been farmed organically, everything is harvested by hand with pesticides and sulphur used only minimally. Due to the low yield per ha, the
wines are concentrated. The cool fermentation preserves the fruitiness and the long yeast storage gives the wines the necessary stability for long bottle ageing.
