The French tractor girl proving Cabernet Franc is more than just a blending grape

  • Although used in classic Bordeaux blends, Cab Franc can make delicious wines in its own right. So when her parents bought the Domaine des Raguenières back in 2012, Philippine Delachaux began her mission to put the Loire’s most popular red grape back on its pedestal. 

  • Her Cab Francs are authentic, terroir-driven wines from grapes grown exclusively in their own vineyards in the communes of Benais, Restigné and Ingrande de Touraine (the ‘garden of France’), in the heart of the Loire Valley - 18 hectares of Cabernet Franc which she transforms into delicious juicy red drops of French loveliness. 

  • To Philippine winemaking isn’t a job, it’s her passion. “For me every day waking up and going to work is a real pleasure, because I don’t have a typical day. I might be making wine, doing paperwork, or driving tractors in the vineyards. It keeps me humble. I like the authenticity of creating terroir wines which are unique to your little plot of land.”
