In the Delaunay family we are winemakers from father to son for 5 generations and we have succeeded in making this Estate what it is today.
Formely a multicrop farm, in 1965 my father Joël Delaunay focused entirely on winemaking and the Estate was established and shaped, the first bottles were marketed in 1970. Year after year, he restructured and expanded the vineyard and started the first export sales in the early 1980’s. The year of 1992 saw the construction of a new modern winery with stainless steel tanks in projection of my upcoming arrival on the Estate.
In 1998 after graduating from a viti-viniculture training course in the Bordeaux region, I took over from my father in 2003 and settled down on the Estate with my wife Marie. Both of us wished to extend this family tradition, to develop our Estate and to use our know-how to move forward.
In 2015, we inaugurated a new bottling facility, a storage zone and the office building and we enriched a new technical and modern bottling line to satisfy our different markets with the screw capping.
