BUT, they are both Alpine regions and if it's all about extended participating, that could be a good idea. And what about embracing the broader region and doing an Alpine Wine Focus. That might not matter to the extent that Switzerland comes into play because no one even has the wines (except for a very few Euro contributors) but then again Trentino might drift too far.
So Jura and Savoie could be a good middle ground.
