Visit Fruitiere Vinicole d'arbois - Château Béthanie

Wine and Gastronomy

Gratuit avec le The Burgundy-Franche-Comté Pass

The Fruitière Vinicole d'Arbois is one of the first wine cooperatives in France, created by 26 Arbois winegrowers on January 4th 1906. At that time, the vineyards had just been destroyed by phylloxera and the wine market was occupied by mediocre wines without controlled origins.The winegrowers of the fruitiere decided to bring a collective and qualitative answer by betting on the viticultural potential of the Jura wines.A quest for excellence led to the first French AOC for Arbois wines on 15 May 1936, followed a few years later by the AOC Côtes du Jura.

Immerse yourself in the rich history of the Fruitière Vinicole d'Arbois and the cooperative model, then taste the wines of the AOC Arbois, the first French AOC created on 15 May 1936, and the AOC Côtes du Jura.

All year round, La Fruitière offers cellar tours and tastings by appointment at Château Béthanie, in Arbois, or on a drop-in basis in July and August, as well as other activities.

In a different style, treat yourself to a self-guided walk or bike ride through our vineyards, with the option of an audio discovery using several QR codes along the way.

Finally, the cooperative is also open to associations and businesses through Maison 1906, a new reception area.
