You might think that Laurence Féraud is “just a négociant” who buys others’ grapes and blends her own wine but she’s certainly earned her stripes.
Her pioneering grandmother started the family vineyards in Châteauneuf du Pape and, due to Napoleonic inheritance laws, these were divided amongst her four children upon her passing. Laurence recalls her grandmother encouraging her to taste wine when she was very young.
Laurence’s father, Paul, continued making wine from his inherited vines. Then in 1987 Laurence created Domaine Pegau and persuaded her father to work together. Today they have around 45 hectares of vines.
She has now brought her considerable blending talents to her new venture: Sélection Laurence Féraud, a range of exciting, value for money wines. Laurence is proud of her son’s palate too – the dynasty continues.
