Julie Balagny is part of a new generation of young winemakers flying the flag for the Beaujolais region. Having fallen in love with Gamay, she cultivates 3.2 hectares in Fleurie, 1 hectare in Beaujolais and 7,000 square metres in Moulin-à-Vent. Julie learnt the ropes at Château de Rey, then domain Terre des Chardons before setting in Fleurie in 2009. Particularly interested in the principles of organic agriculture, she produces wines in a natural style, using neither yeasts nor sulphur. Her wines are bold, recognised in the region and beyond.
