Native of the Rhône Valley, Julien Pilon spent more than 10 years working in Spain and Roussillon, learning winemaking in famous wineries such as Mas Amiel (Roussillon), Terra Remonta (Spain) and Jean Pierre Villa (Rhone). Julien Pilon described himself as a landless winemaker when he started on his own in 2010.

He began as a negociant and selected very carefully the grapes to vinify. He started with 1.5 hectares and now the domain is a modest 5 hectares of vines, some owned, some rented, while the majority of the production is still sourced from purchased grapes.The harvest is manual and he starts his conversion to organic agriculture.

80 percent of Julien’s production is white. He strives to produce white wines with flesh but with maximum freshness too. He wants to make balanced and precise whites. He is producing some of the most exciting Rhône whites wines of genuine flair and class. The wines are very much in the image of the vigneron too – understated, stylish and relying more on nuance than over power.


In just a few vintages, his whites are among the best in the region.
