Ferraton Père et Fils Côtes du Rhône Samorëns

Ferraton Père et Fils Côtes du Rhône Samorëns
1946, a winery rooted at the heart of Hermitage. Jean Orëns Ferraton. Vigneron, and son of a vigneron, passes his passion on to his son, Michel. Ferraton Père et Fils is born. A friend of the Ferratons, Michel Chapoutier, joins the team. The winery owns vineyards in the appellations of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph, which, in 1998, were converted to organic viticulture, certified as such, and then cultivated using bio-dynamics.

The winery's promise: To respect the soils,
the balance of nature, and the work of man.

The Samorëns wines come from their Tradition line, with a focus on the appellation as a whole. This means blending from various vineyards, reflecting a take on the traditional wine from the area.
