Perrin & Fils
The Perrin family has taken particular care that this Côtes du Rhône meets their stringent standards of excellence. As proprietors of Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and producers of La Vieille Ferme from the Côtes du Ventoux and Luberon, the Perrin family has demonstrated exceptionally high standards for nearly a century.
Jean-Pierre and François’s father, Jacques Perrin, was a gifted winemaker who brought world renown to the family domaine, introducing innovative techniques in the cellar, such as flash-heat exchange for maximum extract, integrated pest-control and organic farming practices in the vineyards. Now the next generation of winemakers has joined Jean-Pierre and François – Pierre, Marc and Thomas – to continue the proud family tradition.
Perrin & Fils aspires to establish its reputation specializing in vineyard-designated communal wines from the Southern Rhône. And as the company’s head vineyard scout, Pierre Perrin must unearth diamonds in the rough. ‘I am a discoverer of crus,’ he says. ‘It’s our job to how the complexity and specificity of the terroirs in the Southern Rhône.’
All Wines listed will be available for tasting except for the Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Papes.
