In March 2000, the family Sroka left Alsace for the Dordogne. In their luggage, a dream: to become winegrowers in organic farming. So was born Clos Julien: a small farm of barely 3 hectares. A job ? No better than that, a passion shared as a family. Everyone participates according to their skills and availability.
