The Saint-Préfert estate is roughly a hundred years old but it was completely overhauled and, indeed, regenerated when it was bought by Isabelle Ferrando. Her first career had been in banking but her passion was wine and luckily she had the funds to indulge in her passion, buying up the estate and re-equipping the cellars.
Within a short time she was able to get favourable reviews and the rest, as they say is history. The estate had good vines in good places including some close to legendary Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate Château Rayas. She makes wines that are sumptuous and elegant.
