men of character
It was in Concarneau, at the head of the shipyards created by his father and his uncle, that Jacques Piriou forged a solid reputation as a captain of industry… but also as a man of his word, faithful in friendship and honest in business.
And it was the construction of tuna boats for the Mediterranean that brought him to the Côte Vermeille. Falling in love with the region, he decided to settle there.
A man of passion who loves a challenge, he chose to take up a new one: to produce high-quality wines, here in this wine-growing land of Collioure and Banyuls-sur-Mer…
I am proud that, together, we have been able to meet customers’s expectations by offering them quality wines adapted to their tastes and requirements.
With a diploma in agricultural engineering and oenology, Romuald Peronne has forged a solid experience in viticulture and wine in France and around the world.
Grandson of a Roussillon winegrower, he came to Banyuls-sur-Mer where he “dreamed” of giving life to a benchmark estate. His meeting with Jacques Piriou in 2008 gave him the opportunity to make his dream come true.
Surrounded by the whole team at Clos Saint Sébastien, he constantly strives to improve the quality of wines through rigorous work in the vineyard and the cellar and by challenging skills and techniques to adapt to the diversity of the vintages. His guiding principle is to exalt his unique terroir in each cuvée, in order to share with his customers all the work and passion that goes into them.
