Founded in 1896 by Joseph Tissot, Maison Tissot started to sell wine produced from its own elaboration, before partnering with neighboring vine-growers who grew as regular partners.
At the end of WW2, his son Michel initiated the production of sparkling wines in the Jura, catering for a local appetite for these wines.
In 1948, Michel Tissot marries Juliette Clavelin, whose ancestor gave his name to the famed « Clavelin », the unique 62cl signature bottle reserved for the famous Vin Jaune.
The Tissot family draws closer to Domaine Maire & Fils, a long-time local partner and gives birth to Tissot-Maire, an alliance of wine-making know-how inherited from more than 11 generations and with the largest winegrowing estate in the Jura region, to produce prestigious Crémants.
