The winery is located in the commune of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the area of the same name in the southern Rhône valley. Since 1670, the ancestors of the present owners have cultivated a small piece of land with vines, as well as olive and cherry trees. At that time the farm was run under the family name of Féraud. The winery with the present name was founded in 1987 and is run by Paul Féraud and his daughter Laurence. The name "Pégau" refers to a 14th century clay beaked wine jug discovered during excavations around the Palais des Papes (former papal palace) in Avignon.
The vineyards cover a total of 23 hectares. All 13 classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape grape varieties are cultivated. Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge accounts for 17 hectares, divided into 11 plots. The "Les Bosquets" plot, which is just over one hectare in size, is planted with vines over 80 years old. The average age of the vines is 60 years. Furthermore, there is one hectare for Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc and six hectares for the vin de table "Plan Pégau". For the red Châteauneuf du Pape, the unpulped grapes are macerated in traditional concrete tanks for two to three weeks. The wine then matures for at least 18 months in large and small wooden barrels. Only then is the wine blended with 80% Grenache Noir(Garnacha Tinta), as well as Syrah, Mourvèdre(Monastrell) and all other approved grape varieties. The white Châreauneuf du Pape is blended from 60% Grenache Blanc(Garnacha Blanca), 20% Clairette, 10% Bourboulenc and 10% Roussanne and matures for six months in old oak barrels. Other CdP red wines are produced under the names Cuvée Laurence, Cuvée Justine, Cuvée Maxime and Cuvée Réservée.
