I don't know if Grandma and the Big Bad Wolf are regulars at this Wine Bar.
All I can say is that Le Trou du Loup ('the wolf's hole') has an air of mystery to it.
One thing for sure you will find Stephane Delanoe the owner who turned a well known 'auberge' into a 'bar a vins' a wine bar which opened its doors in February 2010.
High above Besancon after the Tunnel of Morre, the Trou du Loup is also a permanent showcase for the paintings of Yves Hasselmann. Find one you like order it on the spot.
The art and wine blend is not surprising once you learn that Stephane Delanoe was a professional musician for 15 years.

You must have noted the accent on Jura for the local flavor.
Hungry as well as thirsty, order a cheese plate or a selection of saucisson, ham and other cuts or smoked trout.
It will taste better if you sit outside this summer.
