Burgundy, France

Domaine Henri Delagrange, in Volnay, Cote d'Or, owns fourteen and a half hectares of vines int he best area of Cote de Beaune. The family buisiness is run by Didier Delegrange, vine grower and winemaker, who produces high quality Burgundy wines.

The family Domaine has been in existence for more than 6 generations. From 1978, it included the vines of Gisele Verderau and Henri Delagrange who then worked 6 hectares, mainly in Volnay and Pommard. Didier joined the business in 1990, after completing his viticulture studies, and worked with his parents until 2003. During these years together, they planted the bourgognes Hautes-Cotes de Beaune Blancs and the bourgognes Hautes-Cotes de Beaune Rouges.

From 2003, Didier has been on his own at the head of the Domaine with his wife, Hlene. The area planted with vines was expanded again with 65 acres of Aloxe Corton "Les Calliettes" in 2004 and 45 areas of Meursault in 2005, and now covers 14.5 hectares.

The Domaine has adopted sustainable cultivation methods to preserve the natural interaction between the vines and the land. This makes it possible to provide satisfactory yields of healthy, ripe grapes. The land nourishes the vines and man lends a hand all year round to harvest the fruit.
