Wine of Saint-Péray appellation
The appellation area is located in the south of the northern Côtes du Rhone, on the right bank of the Rhône, in the commune of Saint-Péray and part of the commune of Toulaud, in the Ardèche département. There have been vineyards in Saint-Péray since the High Middle Ages. When the Dauphiné became part of France, the wine producing area was finally able to develop due to the increase of traffic along the Rhône River. Saint-Péray and Saint-Péray Sparkling became AOCs in 1936. 

The AOC wines of Saint-Péray come from two types of soil: Cornas’ granite hillside continues over the commune of Saint-Péray as far as the Biguet area in Toulaud. The Mialan Valley separates this hillside from a limestone massif dominated by the ruins of Château de Crussol. The rugged hilly terrain and a deep valley create a slightly cool microclimate within a warmer continental region. 

Saint-Péray wines are dry, aromatic white wines which always show great finesse and elegance. The grapes planted for the still as well as the sparkling wines are Marsanne and Roussanne. The sparkling wines are made via a second fermentation in the bottle according to the Champagne method. The still wines are vinified after a short pressing. Part of the wine is fermented in new barrels and another part, in stainless steel tanks. Within this appellation, the quality of the work of Domaine Alain Voge, and of course that of M. Chapoutier, is particularly worth mentioning.
