Château de Juliénas is 40 hectares of vines, most of which are cultivated in the Juliénas appellation (38 hectares) and 2 hectares dedicated to the Fleurie and Moulin-à-Vent wines. The oldest vines are more than 100 years old! Juliénas is surrounded by a landscape of hills, whose average altitude is 350m, covered with vines. These are located on a wide variety of soils: granite, limestone, clay... The diversity of soils and climates gives each cuvée its distinctive character, the signature of which is unique to Château de Juliénas.
Château de Juliénas is a very old family estate, with so much history and anecdotes...
If it dates back to the 13th century, it was in 1907 that Claude Condemaine, the great-grandfather, bought it and restored the vineyard, then in the middle of a phylloxera crisis.
Since then, 4 generations of winegrowers have succeeded each other.
Thierry has been taking over the torch for more than twenty years now, and is striving to lead the estate with a sustainable vision and in a reasoned way: partial grassing, tillage, reasoned treatments, etc....
Beyond my profession, Château de Juliénas represents a multitude of histories, terroirs, wines... and proudly carries the values of authenticity, constant search for quality in its wines and conviviality.
Château de Juliénas is a simple, true and evocative name; a tool that reflects and serves our terroirs.
Winegrower, the most beautiful profession in the world? I think so! A winegrower from generation to generation, Château de Juliénas is passed on and evolves over time.
Planting, pruning, de-stemming, harvesting, vinification... my work is punctuated by the seasons, the weather, but above all by the passion and pleasure of pursuing the story of my parents, and writing that of my children.
But winegrower and winegrower are not my only hats, there is of course also the one of merchant. We try to favour direct sales, which allows us to be in permanent contact with private customers. This is why we have been opening our doors to the public for several years now and have developed wine tourism at the château.
Traditionally based on the Juliénas vintage, the estate has recently introduced two other vintages: Fleurie since 2012, having acquired a one-hectare plot of land in Les Moriers, and since 2014 Moulin-à-Vent, the small new wine with great potential, produced on a small plot of less than one hectare.
It is still the same grape variety, Gamay, but each wine obtained is different and has its own personality!
