Isabel Ferrando is today one of the leading winemakers in Châteauneuf du Pape. Critic Jeb Dunnock wrote that her wines are "some of the most profound on this earth". Using very old vine grapes from her small estate, this wine is intense and rich.

Since its creation in 1920, Saint Préfert has been a leading estate in Châteauneuf. The Serre family owned it for 80 years, but in 2002 Isabel Ferrando realised her dream, bought it and has taken it to new heights. Isabel is Provence born. She always loved the different flavours of her home region, but started a career in banking. As a new mother, she decided it was time to follow her dream - to become a winemaker. She studied, then looked for her ideal property. It took two years to find - Châteauneuf was the only option. 2003 was her first vintage. Jeb Dunnock wrote, "Isabel Ferrando has taken her Saint Prefert estate to France’s highest level." This is her Classique – nearly all old-vine Grenache, with no oak. Exceptional now or cellar.
"Under the guidance of Isabel Ferrando, Domaine St Prefert has leapt into the handful of top estates"
