The particular lay of the land between Bresse and "Petite Montagne" makes this a unique place with multiple terroirs and flavours. It is the land of numerous labels of origin, such as Jura wines, Comté, Crémant du Jura, Macvin du Jura, Vin Jaune, Vin de Paille and Volaille de Bresse.
Sud Revermont unveils its secrets gradually to you: its castles (Rosay, Chevreaux, etc.), its churches (Maynal, Cousance, Châtel, Sainte-Agnès, etc.) and the Valley of Gizia.
In the very south of the territory is Saint Amour. Its rich heritage bears witness to its historical past: the fortifications which surrounded the old Castle, mullioned windows, sculpted and moulded pediments, statuettes, niches, etc., the Royal prisons, the Apothecary / Capuchin Monastery, the Annonciades Convent, etc.
This modern tower in Orbagna is a hub for wine tourism in the Jura. It organises exhibitions, slideshows and tasting sessions of Jura wine.
Sud Revermont vineyard: The wine-growing slopes of the Sud Revermont
The Sud Revermont has always been favourable to producing wine. It is situated close to the first foothills of the Jura mountains and also features majestic blind valleys. This agricultural area has a patchwork landscape intertwined with orchards and pastures and scattered with typical wine-growing villages, such as Gevingey, Cesancey, Saint-Laurent-la-Roche, Beaufort and Maynal. The Jura Vineyard ends in Saint Amour, a little town in Sud Revermont and the gateway to the Petite-Montagne, highly appreciated for the beauty of its heritage and its southern influences.
The Valley of Gizia
This 3-kilometre-long valley which ends in a 220 m blind valley is undoubtedly the wildest such valley in the Jura.
A type 1 "Zone Naturelle d’Intérêt Ecologique Faunistique et Floristique" (Natural zone of ecological interest, fauna and flora), it is filled with natural treasures (peregrine falcon, chamois and plant species such as Carex halleriana, Fumana procumbens, Globularia vulgaris and an endemic species: Saxifraga giziana). From the Gizia cross viewpoint between Chanelet and Châtel, you can admire the site and the village of Gizia.
