Château Pegau is the name of Laurence and Paul Féraud’s newly-purchased 100+ acre estate, located in Sorgues, less than 4 miles from Châteauneuf-du-Pape.  “Maclura” is a type of Osage Orange tree (also known by the name Hedge Apple). There are many of these trees on the Chateau grounds, inspiring the name of this cuvée.
