Since 1670, our ancestors have continuously cultivated a few plots of vines, as well as olive and cherry trees. The cherries were sold in the markets of Provance to cover the cost of cultivation. The olives and their oil were destined for our family's own consumption. The grapes were harvested and made into wine to produce the famous Chateauneuf du Pape. The oldest wine making evidence we have from our family dates from 1733, but it was not until 1987 that Domaine du Pegau was created.
The grapes were hand-picked by our family in joy and happiness, while ensuring quality control by sorting the grapes. As our family picked ripe grapes in our vineyards, the horses waited patiently until the baskets were loaded onto the cart. The grapes were crushed, the juice stored in vats and fermented for 15 days. The same method of making wine in this tradition continues to this day.
Paul Feraud and his daughter, Laurence Feraud, have expanded the vineyards of Paul's parents, so that Domaine Pegau now owns 21 hectares of Chateauneuf de Pape.
