What is Les Dauphins legacy?

Les Dauphins wines draw their inspiration from the ‘joie de vivre’ mood of Paris in the roaring 1920s, a time when the wines of the Dauphiné region in the Rhône Valley became popular due to their deliciously versatile style. Paris in the 1920s was the artistic capital of Europe, attracting artists, musicians and writers from around the world. The life of these artists revolved around Paris bistros, which served simple but savory food and wine that fueled the creative revolution.

Today, some of the best grape growers in the Southern Rhône craft Les Dauphins wines from the traditional varieties Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre to once again inspire the joy that made 1920s Paris one of the most exciting and creative periods in history.
