Saint Peray is a wine appellation in the Cotes du Rhone region of France which is unusual because rather than producing red wines like the surrounding appellations it produces still and sparkling white wines.
The communes covered by this appellation are Saint-Péray and Toulaud which lie on the western side of the Rhone just south-west of Valence.
The permitted grape varieties are Marsanne and Roussanne. The appellation covers 53 hectares for still white wines and a mere 5 hectares is given over to the production of the 'Mousseux' sparkling wines.
