It was in 2012, after a professional reconversion, that Jérémy Thien created the Domaine des Frontières. Nestled on hillsides on the borders of Beaujolais and Mâconnais, their old vines produce fine and authentic terroir wines. Jérémy is passionate about wine and is in love with his native Beaujolais region. He realized his dream by becoming a winemaker, which allowed him to practice three professions: producer, winemaker and wine merchant.

Our story

When Jeremy THIEN decided in 2012 to nestle on his hillsides on the borders of the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions, it was to wear three hats: wine producer, wine grower and wine merchant. Nestled on hillsides on the borders of the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions, our old vines produce fine, authentic terroir wines. The grapes are harvested entirely by hand. In our cellar, we vinify and age our cuvées like craftsmen. I'm particularly fond of two parcels, one in the Juliénas appellation at a place called Vayolette. With its northern exposure and late ripening, it produces a wine of great finesse. The other, in Beaujolais-Villages, Pré des Bois, overlooks the village of Jullié and has a very distinctive grain. Domaine des Frontières was born at the end of 2012. A wine and Beaujolais terroir enthusiast who turned an old dream into reality after an atypical career change. After a career in Paris, Jérémy Thien decided to return to his native Beaujolais and become a winemaker. He went back to school (CRFPPA Davayé), then set out at the end of 2012 to work on a few hectares of Juliénas and Beaujolais-Villages. First harvest, first bottles, the hard work pays off and the magic happens, the dream becomes reality.

Other little stories

The very definition of a winegrower is to practice three jobs, each one as exciting as the other: cultivating the vine, making the wine and finally marketing it. Each time it is a new experience, made of human encounters. Wine is not a product like any other. As soon as we drink wine, we have a piece of civilization in our glass. If you are looking for a wine that resembles me, taste my Juliénas cuvée réservée. A defining moment in my life as a winemaker would be the emotion I felt when my first bottle of Julienas came off the bottling line.
