Family owned for 4 generations – traditional & modern techniques
Overlooking the river in the Rhône Valley, Domaine Ferraton was established in 1946 and has been a fine example of the region’s viticulture ever since.
Now run by Samuel Ferraton, the 4th generation of the family to take the helm, the estate produces wines displaying exemplary structure with elegant fruit flavours and a tasteful hint of new oak.
Samuel employs a system which is very much a marriage between traditional techniques and more modern methods, many of which were learned during his spell under the tutelage of the famous Chapoutier brothers, an indication of just how highly regarded Samuel’s winemaking skills are by those at the very top of the business.
A juicy structured style, with mineral, lavender and sanguine notes framing the black cherry and currant fruit. An enticing herb note marks the finish.
