Delas Frères was founded in 1835 by Charles Audibert and Philippe Delas. As early as 1879, the winery had a worldwide reputation and won its first gold medals in Sydney. In 1924, the original name Audibert & Delas was changed to Delas Frères. To meet the increasing demand for wine, an investment was made after the Second World War in the purchase of vineyards in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Hermitage. In the 1960s, Delas Frères was one of the leading wine companies in the Rhône, with its own vineyards in Hermitage, Cornas, Côte Rôtie and Condrieu. To this day, Delas Frères owns top vineyards in Hermitage such as Les Bessards and Marquise de la Tourette, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côte Rôtie, Cornas, Condrieu, St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Côtes du Rhône and the Ventoux region.

The Saint Esprit Blanc is a blend of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Viognier from vineyards located on the right bank of the Rhône. After pressing, the must is stored cold for 24 hours in closed steel tanks. After this, the wine ferments in stainless steel at a temperature of 18°C. Lactic acid fermentation is prevented to preserve the natural fresh balance and finesse in the wine. After assembly, the wine is stored in stainless steel tanks (stainless steel).

The grapes mainly come from vineyards in the southern Drôme and are picked at night to take full advantage of the coolness during the bund. After entering the cellar, the grapes are pressed and stored cooled in stainless steel tanks for 24 hours. Fermentation takes place at a maximum temperature of 24°C. To ensure that the wine retains its fresh and fruity character, the wine does not undergo lactic acid fermentation. The wine is stored in stainless steel until bottling. The wine is lightly filtered before bottling.
