Delas Frères opens new €18m winery

Rhône producer Delas Frères has opened a new “state of the art”, €18 million winery and cellar in the town of Tain l’Hermitage.

Designed by Swedish architect Carl Frederick Svenstedt, the new 6,000m2 facility is built entirely from stone glass and steel.

The new winery received its first grapes in September this year and will be used to vinify and age grapes and wines from the estate’s holdings in the northern Rhône, while the older historic cellar in Saint-Jean-de-Muzols will continue to be used for the white wines and southern crus.

As well as a work site, the new winery also includes a tourist element which will include tours of the site and the chance to buy and taste the entire Delas range.

An old residence at the site has also been redesigned and its 11 bedrooms will be used to host Delas’ various guests.

CEO Fabrice Rosset commented: “We are delighted to have been able to make the most of this unique property, now practically an icon thanks to its history and its rebirth within the world of fine Rhône Valley wine. This will be the facility where we will be able to receive devotees of the brand and Rhône Valley wine enthusiasts, in style.”
