Open doors in the Jurançon vineyards Jurançon fr

Come and attend an open day in the Châteaux of the Jurançon appellation. Jurançon produces white wines, whether dry or sweet. All the vines are planted on south-facing hillsides of the Pyrénées.

Jurançon wines are naturally sweet. Here, a warm breeze from Spain blows over the Pyrenees in the autumn, "caramelising" the grapes to give sweet Jurançon. Late harvest, picked grape by grape.

45 winemakers open the doors to their vineyards for wine tastings. Each host will also welcome local craftsmen, artists, farm producers (Pyrenees sheep cheese, pastis (brioche), jams etc.) Guests can also enjoy jazz and rock evenings.
