Ferraton Pere & Fils

Tain L'hermitage, Rhone, France

The land and the people who tend it share the same history.
A history which grows from generation to generation.
At the origin, one man, Jean Orans Ferraton. Vigneron, and son of a vigneron.
A region basked in sun, the Rhone Valley. It was 1946.
The story begins.

Michel, his son, inherited the same passion. He decided to give a new dimension
to his fathers vineyards. The first Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph
Ferraton were brought into the world. A close friend of the Ferratons, Michel Chapoutier brought his know-how. In 1998, the vineyards were converted to organic viticulture, then certified. Before embracing the culture of bio-dynamics. An audacious step. For innovative and strong perspectives.

The cornerstone: the estate of Ferraton Pere & Fils has supported the winery and its cellars. The winery owns vineyards in the appellations of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph.

Their know-how has passed to other renowned terroirs of which the harvest is vinified and aged: Cote-Rotie, Condrieu, Cornas, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cotes du Rhone, Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu and Tavel. Of all these wines, the Single Vineyard Selections act as the quintessence, creating a mirror image of their site, incomparably loyal. Issued of land and vines of biodynamical cultivation, these wines are, due to necessity, of limited quantities, precious and rare.
