Joel Delaunay is a 5th generation vigneron who produces a range of immaculately crafted wines from Touraine. He has 21 hectares of vineyards located on the banks of the Cher tributary, 50 kilometres east of Tours. His brand new stainless-steel winery is evidence of his dedication to quality - recently he has been joined by his son Thierry, who has recently qualified as an oenologist.
Delaunay produces benchmark Touraine Sauvignons which are delicate in style and possess an attractive, green grassy freshness. His Gamay de Touraine is delicious and a bargain at under £5.
