From a winemaking family spanning 5 generations, Lilian Matray, his wife Sandrine and his daughter Célia work the family estate.
The estate buildings are in Juliénas, a charming little Beaujolais village, while the estate’s vines grow on 11 hectares of slopes that are not only in the Juliénas appellation area. The variety of the soils give the very typical, fruity Beaujolais aromas and flavours of each specific appellation.
Here vinegrowing is our sole vocation: ‘Wine is first and foremost a ‘terroir’ (that alchemy of land, microclimate, grape variety and not least the vinegrower himself), it is also a profession and, above all, a passion.
We have mastered all the work in the vines from pruning to harvest, which remains manual.
