The vineyards of the Domain Ferraton Pere et Fils are situated along the Rhone Valley, either on its sun-drenched terraced slopes or on the plain following the sinuous path of the River Rhone.
Domaine Ferraton is a very fine Northern Rhone estate that was run for many years by Michel Ferraton. It is now run by Samuel Ferraton, the fourth generation of the family, who worked for a while in conjunction with Chapoutier freres. The firm has vineyard holdings in Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage and its cellars are located immediately behind those of Marc Sorrel in the heart of Tain l Hermitage.
Samuel Ferraton is very much an artisan winemaker- yet he employs many modern techniques that he picked up while working with the Chapoutiers. Consequently, the wines are a marvellous marriage of the old and the new, displaying good structure and well-defined fruit characters, allied with very judicious and limited use of new oak. The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered
