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 Orëns Ferraton. Vigneron, and son of a vigneron. A region basked in sun, the Rhône Valley. It was 1946.
Michel, his son, inherited the same passion. He decided to give a new dimension to his father’s 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 Père & 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: Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Cornas, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu and Tavel.
