My Notes:

About Domaine St.-Prefert:

In the 1920's, Mr. Fernand Serre pharmacist in Avignon, discovered that a small piece of vineyard in Châteauneuf-du Pape bore his name : the Serres area. As a respectful winelover, he purchased about 80 hectares of vines, at the southern tip of the village of Châteauneuf.

Mr. Serre had been secretly dreaming for years of becoming a winter. He quickly built the winery and learned winemaking techniques. Mr. Serre was one of the first winters in Châteauneuf to bottle his own wine.

Before Mr. Serre passed away, he took great, care of transmitting his know-how to his son Camille and his daughter-in-law, Suzanne.

Today, Isabel Ferrando perpetuates this know-how ans passion for wine growing.
