This is a collaboration between renowned sibling Jura growers, Anne & Jean-François Ganevat and is a reaction to the tiny yields that the 2012 and 2013 vintages gave in Jura. They decided to diversify by purchasing parcels in Beaujolais (Brouilly, Fleurie, Morgon and elsewhere) as well as buying grapes grown by vigneron-friends with a similar mentality and approach to wine. Thus it is that they make a Bo-Jura/Jurolais style blend.

Anne and Jean-Francois Ganevat 2017 Madelon, Vin de France
J-F Ganevat comes from a long line of winegrowers, dating as far back as 1650, although the family supplemented their grape growing with a dairy that produced milk destined for the local cheese, Comté, until 1976.
After working both for his father and for the prestigious Domaine Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne- Montrachet, Jean-François returned to the Jura in 1998 to take over the family domaine. With only eight-and-a-half hectares under vine, the family had seventeen different local varietals planted of both red and white grapes—an incredible amount of variation to consider for holdings of such small size.
For such a fervent perfectionist and insatiable lover of details as Jean-François, the decision to have the domaine certified as biodynamic was a natural choice.
- From a mountainous region nestled in between Burgundy and Switzerland with a cooler climate.
- All wines are organic/ biodynamic/ vegan
