About the wine maker

Domaine Ferraton was founded in 1946 by Jean Ferraton, and under the leadership of son Michel, good vineyards were purchased in Hermitage, Saint Joseph and Crozes Hermitage. The vineyards have been biodynamically maintained since 1998 and a number of vineyards are therefore Demeter certified.

Since 2005, Domaine Ferraton is part of M. Chapoutier, who has invested heavily in new wine cellars and cuverie. The domain mainly focuses on making terroir specific "single vineyard" wines. Today, Ferraton's Rhone wines can compete with the best, given the high scores of well-known wine critics.
