New chairman for Jura wine growers

Thursday May 04 2017 by Vitisphere

Board members of the Jura wine growers’ organisation (SVJ) elected Nicolas Caire as chairman on April 12. The 45-year-old wine grower runs Château Gréa in Rotalier with his business partner Alexandre Rousselot. The independent winery boasts a 20-hectare, appellation-classified vineyard in Rotalier. Until now, he had held no tenure with the organisation and is thus totally new to this type of responsibility. The SVJ had been without a chairman since Franck Vichet resigned in September 2016. It had been managed during the interim period by one of the vice-chairmen.

The new chairman’s tenure runs for three years. One of the major projects he will be tasked with is eradicating flavescence dorée throughout the Jura wine region and a “strengthening” of the area’s appellations involving a review of specifications and monitoring systems. The SVJ represents approximately 480 wine growers and 2,000 hectares under vine.
