Domaine Rolet is established as one of the Jura vineyard flagships and its wines propose the whole terroir richness through the large range of Jura grape varieties. Domaine Rolet is the project of families who wanted to establish a Domaine between tradition and modernity, respecting the Jura wines great diversity. These 3 families are the Devillard family (winemakers in Bourgogne for 5 generations and owners of Château de Chamirey in Mercurey, Domaine des Perdrix in Côte de Nuits, Domaine de la Ferté in Givry and Domaine de la Garenne in Mâconnais), the Flambert family (hotels owners for several generations), and the Dupuis family (entrepreneurs family, specialized in martial arts equipment).
