Our 25 hectares of vines are located in the heart of the "Côtes de Provence", which has been the birthplace of rosé wines for over 2000 years. Thanks to its subsoil (heat-insulating sand and quartz stones) and the mistral which provides dry air and more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year, our terroir offers ideal conditions for red wines with a fresh elegance.
At the beginning of this century, the Domaine des Féraud and the Domaine de Peissonnel were one and the same domain. This one was planted in 1927 by Paul Rival, owner of Château Guiraud, 1er Cru de Sauternes. Long before the Côtes de Provence officially existed, this great precursor was already looking for which grape varieties would be likely to produce the wines that could be expected from the climate and soil of Provence. This skeletal soil is ideal for producing wines of character with low yields, distinguished more by elegance than freshness. Today, the two estates together present an original range of great red, rosé and white wines, in AOC Côtes de Provence and Vins de Pays des Maures.
Paul Rival was one of the first to plant Syrah d'Hermitage, Sémillon des Graves and Cabernet Sauvignon du Médoc. An informed man and a keen observer of nature, he knew how to choose a very special terroir on the road from Vidauban to Saint Tropez, composed of Permian sand and sandstone, mixed with quartz pebbles. He is a friend who taught me a lot but I prefer to keep his identity secret....
We have dedicated ourselves to the grape varieties of our region, with organic viticulture and vinification close to the terroir. It is simply the notion of pleasure that motivates us to go work in our vineyards to beautify and refine the nectar from our vines. We are very attached to the work of our vines.
