At the heart of the Maures forest, in a preserved nature, the Fleury family produces a wine of great elegance. Nestled in a green setting amidst pine trees and noble vine varietals, Château Saint-Julien d'Aille has crossed time without losing its vitality. This ancient monastic farm, led by the Fleury family since 1999, delivers particularly tasty nectars, from a demanding expertise.


The castle has two reception rooms for seminars and weddings: in the old vaulted chapel, with exposed stones and fireplace, or in a large room with ceiling niches and lime paint. The estate also has 1800 olive trees that produce AOC oil.

Original and unusual

Saint-Julien lived in the third century AD. Against the advice of the Roman authorities, the centurion converted to Christianity in 304 and deserted the army. He was arrested, put to death and beheaded. The rebellion of this martyr against the omnipotence of Rome would spark an immense fervour throughout the Empire. In Gaulle, over 300 chapels were erected to Saint Julien’s memory. In 1095, Pope Urban IX decided to sanctify him and blessed the chapel of Château Saint Julien.
