About the Producer
Founded in 1873 as one of the first wine merchants in Bordeaux, Dulong has been handed down through 5 generations – the profession of merchant and grower lies at the heart of the family.
Now, as a leading merchant on the Bordeaux market, they have a dedicated vinification facility built in 2000. They are one of the ‘sustainable wine’ pioneers in the area, a genuine philosophy also shared by their 80 partner vintners with a total of 700 ha under their control.
Winegrowing partners are committed to quality and the environment through the Dulong Quality Charter created in 1998, defining specifications with the aim of increasing quality and consideration for the environment. This sustainable form of agriculture takes into account the needs of the soil, the well-being of the vine and conserves the environment with just the right balance of human intervention. Dulong has, for a long time, adopted this approach and considerably reduced the use of pesticides whilst increasing practices for biodiversity in the vineyards.
Winemaking is overseen by Benjamin Tueux, an oenologist specialising in Bordeaux wines. Michel Rolland, a famous consultant oenologist, has worked on the design of their red blends.
The emblem of Dulong is closely linked to the history of Bordeaux and particularly to the King Richard the Lionheart’s coat of arms, adopted by the family in 1873.
