Critic Jeb Dunnock wrote that Isabel Ferrando is making wines that are "some of the most profound on this earth". Her fabulous Cuvée Auguste Favier is dense with dark fruits, wild herbs, chocolate and spice. A powerful, yet elegant Châteauneuf.

Since its creation in 1920, Saint Préfert has been a leading domaine in Châteauneuf. The Serre family owned it for 80 years, but in 2002, Isabel Ferrando realised her dream and bought it. 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. Jeb Dunnock wrote, "Isabel Ferrando has taken her Saint Préfert estate to France’s highest level." Her sublime Auguste Favier uses grapes from the very rocky Les Serres lieux dit. Aged part in large barrel, part in vat, it's a complex, rich wine.
"Under the guidance of Isabel Ferrando, Domaine St Prefert has leapt into the handful of top estates"
