Ferraton Père & Fils, Rhône Valley wines
Your Sommelier is always very proud to come up with this small family estate, one of the greatest references in Northern Rhône - and definitely one of your favourites. Created in 1946 by Jean Ferraton, it has been acquired by the famous Maison Chapoutier in 2004. They have magnified its exceptional potential by granting them full autonomy, while giving advice and helping on winemaking techniques. All vineyards are now biodynamic, meaning no chemicals are used on soils or plants.
"The quality at this tiny Hermitage-based estate continues to increase in almost every vintage" - Robert Parker.
Ferraton's most recognised wines are from their historic parcels in Hermitage and Crozes Hermitage - you will find some of them here. They also elaborate beautiful wines in other appellations, from an entry-level Côtes du Rhône to some upmarket Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie. In summary, you should be able to find a wine for every wallet!
