Céline and Steve Gormally farm 5.5ha of vines in Passenan, scattered around 10 plots in five villages, including the prestigious Château-Chalon.

Creating Les Dolomies – a reference to Passenans’ dolomitic rock, a salty magnesium-rich limestone – in 2008, the couple live above their cellar with their three young daughters. Extremely busy Céline and Steve grew tired of regularly battling against the INAO and its administration, and from 2017 onwards they renounced the Côtes du Jura appellation for the Vin de France designation (on all bottlings). Wild yeast fermentation and bottling without fining or filtration have always been the norm.

Arco is the name of one of the two donkeys that help the team, during harvest, on that particularly rocky and steep slope. This wine is simply marvelous with racy acidity and lovely salinity on the finish.
