Introducing La Ferme Saint Pierre

Paul Vendran is a native of the town of Flassan which sits tranquilly at the base of Mont Ventoux. His father Albert, mayor of Flassan for 36 years, was not a wine drinker and sold every harvest to the coop. In 1990, after passing on engineering school for a degree in viticulture and oenology, Paul took over the domain and began making and bottling his wines.

The two driving principles behind Paul's wines are that the work is done in the vineyard and that wines should be drunk and therefore, rich and pleasing at a young age. He doesn't use chemicals in the vineyards and is meticulous about walking the rows and performing long hours of manual labor. Secondly, he has chosen Syrah and Viognier for the microclimate he is blessed with. These grapes consistently give him the style of wine he wants, low acid, ripe and rich with glycerin.

St. Pierre is a working farm with 25 hectares of vines planted to Syrah (8ha), Carignan (7ha), Grenache (3ha), Cinsault (1ha), Viognier (4ha), Clairette and Grenache Blanc (1ha) and Chardonnay (1ha).
