The vineyard dates back to the Roman era, but only really developed as of the 15th century. During the French Revolution, the name - Saint Peret was prohibited and replaced by ?Peret white wine?. The appellation is traditionally available in white, including a high percentage of sparkling wines. But over the past dozen years, still wine sales have increased, which is of little surprise as the category is well-suited to this terroir.
The vineyard is situated on the Rhone?s right bank within the districts of Saint Peray and Toulaud in the Ardeche administrative area. Its topography is unusual with some of the vines on slopes and others situated in a deep valley. The appellation marks the border between the northern and southern Cotes du Rhone growing region. This warm region benefits from a microclimate that brings freshness, thereby favoring the elaboration of great white wines. Soils made up of a granite base altereted with saprolite.
