About Producer Nerdy stuff Serving

This wine is a collaboration between the talented winemaker Willy Allion and the renowned French sommelier Philippe Faure-Brac, who was awarded the title of "Best Sommelier in the World" in 1992. The winery is situated along the Loire, approximately 50 kilometers east of the city of Tours. The wine is named "La Dilecta" in honor of Honoré de Balzac, who bestowed this affectionate name upon his first love, Madame de Berny. This partnership combines Allion's winemaking expertise with Faure-Brac's exceptional palate, resulting in a wine that beautifully expresses the terroir and character of the Loire Valley.
