The name Pegau (old
Provencal word for a wine jug found in the excavations from the 14th century
Popes Palace in Avignon) was created in 1987, when Laurence Feraud after her
wine studies went home to help her father Paul Feraud at the domain. Paul
always talks about Laurence as "le chef", but he is an experienced
winemaker himself. The property has belonged to the family for several
generations. From 1986 Paul Feraud started bottling of wine and sold it
under the mark Domaine Feraud.
Today father and daughter have made Pegau to one of the most well known wines
of Chateauneuf du Pape.
The domain covers 23 ha of Chateauneuf du
Pape. The 11 parcels are spread around the appellation and gives different
wines, which after the blending result in a very distinct wine, a true old-fashioned Chateauneuf du Pape.
