Greg can trace his roots back to 12th century Europe hailing from a family originating from the walled town of Lille, France hence their ancestral name “DeLille” from which the winery is named. Currently celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2012, DeLille Cellars has been on the forefront of blazing the wine-trail in Washington. Being the third winery started in Woodinville, WA it is composed of three labels, DeLille Cellars –Bordeaux style wines, Doyenne –Rhone style, and Grand Ceil – terroir focused wines from the winery’s Red Mountain AVA vineyard. Robert Parker Jr. of the “Wine Advocate” rated DeLille Cellars and Doyenne as two of the top twelve producers, bestowing the title of the “Lafite Rothschild of Washington State.”

DeLille has been rated 92 points or higher for over 20 consecutive years. The Institute of the Masters of Wine in London, England honored DeLille Cellars with the “Certificate of Excellence” award, the only winery from the northwest to receive this honor. For almost two decades DeLille Cellars Chaleur Estate Rouge was awarded scores of 91-96 points and a platinum medal from Wine Enthusiast. DeLille Cellars is the only winery in the world to be listed in the top 100 wines of the world, two years in a row, by the Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator Magazine. In 2008, DeLille Cellars set the record for the highest price paid for a lot of Washington State wine at auction ($70,000).
