October 25, 2016: Greg Lill, DeLille Cellars

by Jay Leon on April 3, 2017

Greg can trace his roots back to 12th century Europe hailing from a family originating from the walled town of Lille, France hence their ancestral name “DeLille” It was the fourth winery started in Woodinville in 1992. Robert Parker Jr. of the “Wine Advocate” bestowed DeLille Cellars the title of the “Lafite Rothschild of Washington State”. DeLille has been rated 92 points or higher for over 20 twenty consecutive years. In fact since their inception 25 years ago DeLille Cellars has received  scores of 90 points or higher on over 400 of their wines! The Institute of the Masters of Wine in London, England honored DeLille Cellars with the “Certificate of Excellence” award, the only winery from the northwest to receive this honor.. DeLille Cellars is the only winery in the world to be listed in the top 100 wines of the world, two years in a row, by the Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator Magazine. Just last month Greg and his wife Stacy were present for the 10th Anniversary of the Embassy of Monaco where DeLille Cellars wines were poured exclusively. This is the third time DeLille Cellars wines have been the wine of choice for HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
