Placing Man and Wine at the heart of the Terroir

Founded in 1835 in the heart of the northern Rhône, Delas Frères crafts world class wines from both the northern and southern Rhône.

The winery was founded in 1835 by Philippe Delas and Charles Audibert, and passed on to Philippe’s two sons (one of which married Charles’ daughter). They changed the name of the maison to Delas Frères in the early 1920s and established this name as one synonymous with high quality. In 1993 Delas Frères became part of the Champagne Louis Roederer group, which shares a similar family owned history and pursuit of excellence. 2020 saw the completion of a new state of the art winery and house in Tain Hermitage where all of the top appellation wines are vinified and aged, underlying their commitment to producing the highest quality wines.

The Domaine cultivates vineyards on the steep granite slopes of the northern Rhône. Now owning 30 hectares of prime vineyards in the northern Rhône, including 10 hectares on the famed Hermitage hill, the team adapt their growing practices to each plot of vines to let the terroir of the Rhône shine through in the wines. Since 2013 they have been working organically, but are not certified. Additional grapes are supplied through long-term agreements with southern Rhône growers dedicated to providing only top quality grapes.

Crafted by winemakers Jacques Grange and Claire Darnaud, the wines from Delas Frères epitomise finesse and elegance. Recent vintages from the vineyards of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Ventoux have been lauded in the press for their intensity of flavour and excellent value, and are regarded as some of the most refined in the region.
