The culitvation of vine in Beaujolais originates from Juienas and expamded during the Gallo-Roman era. The name Julienas is derived from Julius Caesar, the Roman emperor. Located on steep slopes, between 300 and 400m above sea level, the vineyard takes advantage of the coolness which is necessary to produce quality grapes.
