Winery: Chateau de Mus

The Chateau de Mus is located in Murviel-Les-Beziers in the Languedoc region.It is home to a gorgeous Renaissance-style castle.

The Julien Family has been working hard in the vineyards, in the cellars, but they also have a restoration project for the chapel and the castle located on the property. Today, Yannick and Brice are representing the 5th generation of winemakers in the Family.

Date Founded: 2004

Owner: Bernard and Marina JULIEN, and their sons, Yannick, today Maître de Chai, and Brice, Sales and Export Manager
Winery Philosophy: The Julien's Family is dedicated to producing modern wines using traditionnal grape varietals. In order to achieve this goal, they believe in clean and fully ripen fruit, destemming, temperature controlled vinification, as well as sustainable viticulture.

Dating back at least 800 BC, the Château de Mus represents one of the largest archaeological sites in Hérault, illustrating the prehistoric, Celtic, Roman, Greek and Etruscan ages. The estate was named after an ancient fortified place called « Murus » («city wall» in Latin), built up on a promontory over the Orb river. At MUS, a Romanesque church was built in 1070 (today its restoration is in progress) such as one of the six first castles of the area. Twice destroyed during the crusade against the Cathars in the 13th C. the former mansion was replaced in 1848 by a Renaissance-style castle, prefiguring the great times of the “wine chateaux” in Languedoc.
The JULIEN'S bought the CHATEAU DE MUS in 2004
