The domain is built at the
remainings from an old monastery. An inscription on a wall from the 8th entury is among the remains.
The ageing cellar of today was a chapel in the 12th century.
In the early 1950ties the place came in possession of the Jullien
family. At that time 13 ha. belonged to the property, 5 ha.of them with
vines and the rest planted with olive- or fruit trees. The cold winter in 1956 destroyed these fruit trees and more vines were planted - a common
story which can be told about many properties in the area.
Today the domain is run by Guy Jullien and his son Thomas who has got an oenologic education and also Thomas's wife
Marie-Sophie works at the domain. You might meet her or Guy's wife
Michèle if you visit the place.
