Emilie and Alexis Porteret are not from Jura winemaking backgrounds, but have embraced both the place and the profession with great enthusiasm. Having relocated from the Doubs department, this young couple gave up other careers to pursue winemaking. Domaine des Bodines was established in 2010 after Alexis spent several years working part time for Pascal Clairet of Domaine de la Tournelle and Bruno Ciofi of Domaine de la Pinte. He credits both of these excellent winemakers with having taught him the benefits of organic and biodynamic vineyard work, as well as how to work well and naturally in the cellar. Today the couple share responsibilities at the Domaine and are eager to learn, improve, and continue to grow with the help of family and friends.
