Grapes and wine have been part of the Danjou & Banessy families for many generations.
While the tradition has always been for fortified and rancio wines, the addition of vineyards during the 50’s allowed them to build a ‘library’ of old wines. In 2001, Benoit Danjou took the reins, joined by his brother Sébastien a few years later. They are the keepers of the family’s style, and stock, of old fortified wines, whilst also adding light wines to the range. Domaine Danjou-Banessy uses a single-vineyard approach to winemaking across its 17 hectares of land, using vines with an average age of 60 years. The wine production method is fully biodynamic and non-interventionist, and has been for generations. All of these factors lead to delicious wines that are lively, elegant and softly textured.
