Grand Ciel in the Red Mountain AVA is DeLILLE CELLARS’ first owned vineyard. In partnership with Jim Holmes of Ciel du Cheval Vineyard (see below), we developed this site as 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.
