Cave Christophe Jacquod was founded in 1980 and managed as a traditional estate by Léon Jacquod. New land was acquired in 1988, and the winery’s activities expanded. Cave Jacquod’s claim to fame is that it includes one of the world’s earliest Diolinoir vineyards, the oldest having been planted as a test site outside the federal wine-growing research station in 1988.
The winery has been at its current Croix-de-Corban premises since 2000. The old buildings, typical of the region, now house barrels of Pinot and Diolinoir wines, which are left to mature in a magnificent stone-built carnotzet, where tastings are also held.
