We are a Franco-American couple who moved to the South of France from Chicago in 2003 to take over the Pepin family vineyard, leaving behind our jobs in finance and public relations for fresh air, starry skies
and organic farming. We believe in respecting the environment, that's why we use no chemicals and let mother nature provide the water for our plants.
Our 11 hectares produce grapes, olives, apricots, cherries, plums, apples, pears, pomegranates, figs, almonds, hazelnuts and black winter truffles. We offer truffle-hunting tours of the property when in season. Tours include a sampling of fresh truffle hors d'oeuvres, Champagne and a taste of our organic Les Pastras olive and truffle oil.
Fine food enthusiasts can adopt a tree at Les Pastras and receive a yearly shipment of olive oil or truffles. The perfect gift! Visitors can even choose their own tree during their truffle-hunting tour.
And for every tree adopted, Les Pastras donates to a children's charity with which we have a personal connection. Our charity partners provide food, education and medical care to children around the world.
