Jacques Grange joined Delas Freres as winemaker on June 2, 1997. Grange holds a degree in enology from the University of Dijon and has extensive winemaking experience, including a four-year stint at Chapoutier working directly with Michel Chapoutier on the 1991-’94 vintages.
Most recently, Grange worked with Jean-Luc Colombo, one of the Rhone’s most respected enology consultants. In this position he worked closely with nearly all of the Rhone’s wine estates, including Vernay, Domaine de La Janasse, Cuilleron and Château Fortia. In addition to a deep knowledge of the region’s diverse vineyards and microclimates, Grange has developed strong connections with the people of the Rhone Valley through his work.
