Ferraton Pere & Fils is a domaine attached to its roots and origins. Of men who are passionate, loyal to their heritage with which they have forged the identity of Ferraton Pere & Fils. The winery is composed of a team who observe and experiment, always with the greatest respect. Of those who work the land, the vines, the wine.
n Pere & Fils brings together a fraternity of winemakers in a quest for excellence of precious and generous wines. The resulting wines are considered as being unique witnesses to the land and climate from which they originate.
Distinguished as a fine Syrah producing zone since the 18th century, Cornas, like Cote Rotie, is made up of vineyards covering steep and hard-to-work, granite terraces. As a result the region’s wines fell out of favor during the mid 20th century when the global market was more focused on bulk wines and vineyards that yielded high quantities. It wasn’t until the 1980s when a group of energetic young winemakers reestablished the integrity of these precipitous terraces and also began making an ultra-modern style of Syrah. The new style didn’t need a decade before it was drinkable and could reach the consumer faster than the region’s traditional wines. Given the new quality coming out of the zone, its popularity once again soared and today a good Cornas can easily challenge many of those from Hermitage.
