Thierry Delaunay

France, Loire

This domaine has been in the hands of the Delaunay family for five generations, with Thierry only recently taking over from his father Joël. The estate covers 21 hectares, on the banks of the Cher, in the appellation of Touraine in the Loire Valley. The first wines from the Domaine were bottled in 1971, and today all wines are produced and bottled on site. The combination of clay and flint soils - 'perruches’, permit a diverse range of grapes to grow successfully in this region, although the Delaunay family choose to only grow the typical grapes of the region.
