The history of the Château de Fleys estate begins with the arrival of Julien Philippon in Fleys at the end of the 19th century.
Originally from Vezelay (Morvan) where he worked as a lumberjack, he settled in the Chablis area and bought wood, land and vines which still make up almost the entire estate today.
Since then, the estate has been handed down from father to son.
In 1988, André Philippon bought the Château de Fleys (the headquarters of the estate) with its 1 hectare estate. This building is a hunting lodge dating from the end of the 17th century, having belonged to the Lord of Parthenay, squire to Louis XIV.
In 2006, Béatrice and Benoît, André Philippon's children, built a new cellar at 2 rue des Fourneaux, which is more suitable and modern.
Today, Julien's great-grandchildren (Béatrice, Benoît and Olivier, who arrived in 2007) run the estate, respecting the family tradition but also modernising to improve the quality of the wines.
