The history of the Pélépol family since 4 generations
Old fortified farm of the 12th century, Sainte Croix was occupied by the Cistercian monks while they were building the Thoronet Abbey three kilometres away from there.
In 1924, while the Pélépol family lives thanks to its farming activity, the opportunity to buy 5 hectares of vines is offered to them. At the beginning, they carried the grapes to the cooperative cellar of Carcès but in 1927, Fernand Pélépol decided to create his first cellar in the village.
After a refurbishment of the old farm in rubble, the estate has grown over the years.
