Domaine du Petit Pérou (little Peru) is in the Beaujolais wine-growing region, just over the hills from the Duroussay family winery in Pierreclos.
Hugo is one of Paul’s good friends from wine school, and together with his father, Laurent they produce the typical Gamay of the region as well as a very special Syrah Beaujolais that has only been produced since 2016. Petit Perou has 18 hectares of producing vineyards, mostly around the village of Morgon. The vines are all hand pruned, and weeds are controlled ploughing to minimize herbicide use. Vineyards are inspected and treated only when necessary following the sustainable lute raisonee.
