The name Pegau (old Provencal word for a wine jug found in the excavations of the 14th century Popes Palace in Avignon) was created in 1987, when Laurence Feraud after her wine studies went home to help her father Paul Feraud at the domain. Paul always talks about Laurence  as "le chef", but he is an experienced winemaker himself. The property has belonged to the family for several generations. From 1986 Paul Feraud started bottling of wine and sold it under the mark Domaine Feraud.
Today father and daughter have made Pegau to one of the most well known wines of Chateauneuf du Pape. The domain covers 18 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape. The 11 parcels are spread around the appellation and gives different wines, which after the blending result in a very distinct wine, a true old-fashioned Chateauneuf du Pape. In the vineyards organic methods are used.

In 2009-2010 a new underground cellar unit was built.
