Saint Péray Wine - Buy Wine from the Saint Péray Region of France
Saint Péray is the southernmost and (with the exception of the minute 3.8 hectare ‘monopole
’ of Château Grillet) the smallest of the Northern Rhône’s appellations, with approximately 65 hectares of land under vine, but it should not be overlooked as it is an important source of characterful still and sparkling, dry white wines.
Many of the regions’ big négociants
like to dabble with vine holdings in Saint Péray in order to get their hands on some fizz without (perish the thought) having to send out to Champagne. There are, however, a handful of vrai
Saint Péray wine producers who live en place
and whose primary focus is upon the appellation’s wines.
Jean-Louis Thiers of Domaine Biguet is at the forefront of this elite group of independent vignerons
, having made the bold decision back in 1980 to stop bulk-selling his wine to local merchants en vrac
and to bottle his own output.
