Situated in the same Quartier des Serres as it was back in 1930s, when it was among the first Châteauneuf du Pape estates to sell its wines in bottle, The estate is situated on the south side of the village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape atop gravel and pebble soils.
St Prefert is an historic state with some great terroir, old vines and a large proportion of Mourvedre, with the potential to produce very special wines that have their own distinctive personality. This is exactly what owner Isabel Ferrando has succeeded in achieving since taking over the estate in 2003. Traditionally made, using whole bunch fermentation, with concrete tanks and used oak hogsheads for ageing, these are wines of personality and life that have a great deal to say about where they are from. Isabel Ferrando farms organically. She expanded her holdings and built a new state-of-the-art winery in 2009. Isabel's mentality is to never stop improving: "The substantial work done in the vineyards over the past eight years brings us ever closer to the level of quality that I seek. Progress is ahead of us."A stellar estate.
