In the world of wine, there are many good winegrowers. However, there are only a very select few who are truly great, and Auguste Clape will go down in history as one of the greats. A proud and uncompromising pioneer of fine winemaking in the Northern Rhône, his Syrahs from the cru of Cornas have earned their place among the most celebrated wines of France. 

Saint-Peray is located just south of Cornas. It is a tiny appellation that produces only sparkling and white wine. This lovely white is rich and floral, comprised of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne from 40+ year old vines.
