The love of the earth
The estate vineyard has been farmed by three generations in Mazan, a village located in the heart of Provence at the foot of the Mont Ventoux.
We strongly believe that this wonderful terroir, loved and respected by our parents and grandparents, should be given more value and optimized. Just like them, we attach great importance to the respect of traditions and environment. Thanks to the “savoir-faire” they taught us, we refer to the lunar calendar for some vine and wine works.
Our vines benefit from an exceptional microclimate: sunny, dry and windy thanks to “the Mistral” which is favorable to the natural protection of the vines.
The Mont Ventoux proximity gives us cool nights which optimize the natural acidity of the grapes and provide balance and ageing potential to the wines.
In 2011, we decided to widen the estate by the purchase of 8 hectares of hillsides parcels. In total, our vineyard is now 28 hectares. We called this acquisition “La Grange” which means here in Provence “The Mas” and represents for us the cradle of the Delay family.
With this land grapes, grown from the noblest Rhône Valley varieties, we produce “majestic” wines with a great fineness and richness.
