The winery is located in the municipality of Courthézon on the southern Rhône. Its origins go back to the 17th century. It is already run by the fourth generation of the Perrin family. The brothers Jean-Pierre and Francois Perrin have rigorously committed themselves to organic viticulture. The vineyards cover 119 hectares. From 69 hectares, a Châteauneuf-du-Pape is produced according to an old family recipe, which, along with that from Château Rayas, is one of the very best in the appellation. Two of the decisive factors for the quality are the low yield with a maximum of 30 hl/ha and the high age of the vines with over 50 years. After destemming, the mash is subjected to maceration (with steam to 80 °Celsius) to promote extraction of the tannins.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
