About the producer: Cave Julien Cécillon
Cave Julien Cécillon is the project of two winemakers; American Nancy Kerschen and Rhône valley’s native Julien Cécillon. After working for various wineries including Yves Cuilleron and Saintsbury, they founded their estate in 2011. With vineyards situated on the steep, rocky hillsides of the Northern Rhône Valley, they are dedicated to produce elegant, terroir driven wines which reflect the climate, soil, and character of each appellation. Respecting the unique environment of each appellation, the estate applies sustainable viticulture techniques and combine modern means, ancient traditions, and innovative cultivation methods to produce well-structured and graceful wines that pair well with food.
