This week we’re joined by Jean-François of Domaine Jean Boudry vineyard and local wine-guys Jesse Oberman & Taylor Archibald of Winnipeg-based natural wine rep Elevage Selections. We delved deep into the traditions of wine-making in the Jura region and drank some Parallel 49 Bodhisattva & a selection of Jean-François’s wines.
