Our establishment is located in the Orée de la Forêt de Vaivre, in the heart of the capital of the County, of the Jura vineyards, close to hiking trails. An escalation? The Trou de la Lune (locality) route de Chamole departure on foot from the rue du théâtre. A horseback ride? An equestrian center is located in St Lothain, a village of character 6km from Poligny, it is possible to get there through the Vaivre forest by bike, on foot or by car.
Poligny is rightly called "Capital of the Comté". It is in fact within its walls that most of the cheeses produced in the "Comté" zone are matured. More than 200,000 millstones are being prepared there while awaiting future marketing around the world. Poligny brings together the largest refining companies such as Juraflore, Monts et Terroir, Grillot-Brevet, Brun and Vagne. For 25 years, the city also hosted the County Festival, a real moment of glory for this king cheese, which was hosted by often prestigious sponsors.
The second pearl of food in Poland: the vineyard. Admittedly, the Polinois terroir only covers a small part of the 1,850 hectares of Jura, but it behaves all the same as a pleasant companion to its neighbor Arbois, who specializes in this kind of culture. In the heart of Revermont, the Poligny vineyard produces quality wines: Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Trousseau under the appellations of origin Côtes-du-Jura, Macvin du Jura or even Crémant du Jura. The Polish winegrowers also produce "Jura gold", Vin Jaune, a Savagnin grape that is aged in barrels for 6 years and 3 months. In February 1997, Poligny hosted the first Percée du Vin Jaune, which has since become the most important wine event in France with more than 50,000 visitors over a weekend.
The heritage of Poligny, city of art and history, is illustrated in particular by :
The castle of Grimont was established on an old temple dedicated to Apollo Gryneus which stood on a rocky peak. Grimont would come from the contraction of Grynei Mons: the Mont de Gryneus. Having resolved to make the city of Poligny the main stronghold and the center of his administration over the country, Louis XI had the city and the castle fortified with major works in 1481.
Today, a few walls remain of these fortifications, the Tour de la Sergenterie, the Donjon Saint-Laurent and its face-shaped brick, and loopholes in the walls of the houses on the Grande Rue, clearly visible from the gardens of the street. of Longeville.
