Fabrice Delalande

Fabrice Delalande is the sixth generation of Delalandes to work his family's vineyards in Chinon and three generations live in a farmhouse among the vines. He joined his father in 1989 and at that point the family decided to begin bottling their own wine instead of selling only to négociants.

Domaine de la Semellerie stretches over 39 hectares of some of the best land on the hillsides in the village of Cravant-les-Côteaux. The vines, averaging 20 to 35 years of age, are ideally situated, south facing, and planted on clay silica soils with an abundance of pebbles which ensure that the grapes reach perfect maturity as well as aiding drainage.
