Grand Ciel Vineyard
DeLille Cellars' long-term goals have always been to create our own vineyard, so that we have the proper control of the fruit we use to make our wine. Ultimately, this control is vital to making fine wine. We also believe that it is imperative to wait for the finest vineyard site opportunities.
Grand Ciel in the Red Mountain AVA is a "state-of-the-art", no expense spared vineyard. Grand Ciel Vineyard was designed to produce great vintages with the best of both worlds - namely concentration and hang-time complexity. With the French grape clones we chose, along with high-density planting and traditional Guyot trellising, this vineyard slows everything down. Our first harvest from Grand Ciel Vineyard was the 2004 vintage.
