Domaine Julien Masquin

In 1936 Julien Masquin’s grandfather purchased vineyards in Courthezon, but rented it to other winegrowers because he was occupied by starting a brush factory in Coutheszon. Julien’s father was more interested in the factory than in winemaking. Julien himself wanted to become a winegrower and he attended the wine school in Avignon. As a part of his studies he was a trainee at Vieux Télégraphe. After having finished his studies the contract with the winegrowers were denounced, and in 1998 Julien started running the vineyards himself. The company Domaine Julien Masquin was founded.

Since 2009, Julien Masquin has made and bottled wines with his own name. The domain covers 23,75 of vineyards of which 7,8 ha is Chateauneuf du Pape and the rest is Cotes du Rhone and IGP.
