Vineyard Story: Domaine du Pegau

An iconic producer of traditionally styled Châteauneufs, Pegau has a vast worldwide group of highly loyal fans, many of whom have trekked to the estate for a visit with the extremely hospitable and entertaining Féraud family.

Laurence Féraud makes no apologies for the sometimes rustic character of Pegau’s wines, which are sourced from the domain’s 21 hectares of vines, made entirely with whole clusters and aged in old founders and demi-muids for two years before bottling without fining or filtration. On the contrary, Laurence Féraud relishes the opportunity to continue the family tradition of making “wild wines that have their own personality. Like people with a unique character, not everybody is going to be in love with them.”
