About the Winery: Based in Volnay, the Delagrange Family owns 32 acres of vineyard located amongst the best terroirs of the Côtes de Beaune. The Estate is run by Didier Delagrange, vinegrower and winemaker who produces high quality Burgundy wines that are vinified and bottled at the Estate. The Domaine’s philosophy can be summarised as follows: Careful, rigorous care of the vines as this is the start, with grapes picked perfectly healthy and at the right moment. The importance of understanding each vintage to preserve the natural balance of the wine and to maintain the traditional character of the wine by intervening as little as possible during vinification.
