DeLille Cellars is a boutique artisan winery located in Woodinville, Washington. Under celebrated winemaker Chris Upchurch, DeLille Cellars was the first winery in Washington to focus on creating Bordeaux style wine blends. The winery is very prominent on the Red Mountain AVA with its own 20 acre vineyard along with other top sites in the Yakima Valley. DeLille Cellars currently produces six Bordeaux-styled wines including Grand Ciel, Chaleur Estate Rouge, D2, Harrison Hill, Four Flags and Chaleur Estate Blanc. Also produced are the Doyenne wines which include classic northern Rhône Syrah – awarded as one of the great 15 Syrahs of the world; a Roussanne; Metier, a Southern Rhône-style red wine; AIX, a Provence-style red wine and a Bandol-style Rose. Robert Parker, Jr. of The Wine Advocate rated DeLille Cellars and Doyenne as two of the top 12 Washington producers, bestowing the title of the “Lafite Rothschild” of Washington State.
DeLille Cellars has a traditional “chai” Chateau winery located on the 10 acre Lill Family Estate which overlooks the Woodinville valley floor below as well as its Carriage House tasting room.
In May 2013, Bacchus Capital Management provided significant growth capital to DeLille Cellars, a leading Washington winery founded in 1992 by Charles and Greg Lill, Jay Soloff and Chris Upchurch. DeLille Cellars is one of the most respected wineries in the US today. The partnership with Bacchus provides DeLille Cellars with additional resources to support key aspects of making and selling DeLille’s renowned wines.
