SPES MEA DEUS : God is my hope

Dating from the 13th century and owned by the Lords of Beaujeu, the Château de Juliénas has always been a wine estate. The northern part was rebuilt at the end of the 16th century.
 
The authentic vaulted cellars made of local stone date from 1744. In 1907, Thierry's great-grandfather, Claude Condemine, acquired and restored the Château and improved the vineyard. Today, the domain counts 40 hectares in Juliénas, Fleurie and Moulin-à-Vent, constituting the largest vineyard of the Juliénas appellation.

Beyond my job, the Château de Juliénas represents a multitude of histories, terroirs, wines... it proudly carries, at the national and international level, values of authenticity, performance and conviviality.

"Winegrower, the most beautiful job in the world? I think so!

Inhabited by winegrowers from generation to generation, the Château de Juliénas is passed on and evolves with time.

Planting, pruning, harvesting... With the help of my wife Aurélie, our work is punctuated by the seasons, the weather, but above all by the passion and pleasure of continuing the story of my parents, and writing that of our children.

Today, concerned about current environmental issues, we mix tradition and modernity. Indeed, since 2018, the Château has obtained the Terra Vitis label, a guarantee of a reasoned agriculture which is more respectful of the environment. To go further in our approach, we have also begun a conversion to organic farming, the estate will receive the AB label in 2022."
