Ferraton La Tournee blanc




Domaine Ferraton – La Tournée Blanc 2018

The story

La Tournée refers to the delivery round of wines by the domaine; therefore the first delivery car of Ferraton is featured on the label (you can still see it at the reception at the domaine). But La Tournée also means ‘giving a round’ so treating your friends to a glass of wine. That is what this friendly wine aims to do; connecting people in an informal setting with nice food and nice wines.

The vines for this wine are located on clay and calcarous hillsides, in the Herauld and Gard area, in de Languedoc in the south of France.

The grapes

Viognier and Vermentino

Tasting notes

Color: Brilliant and pale yellow with green tints

Nose: Notes of citrus, grapefruit,  peaches.

Taste: Ample and fruity attack. Good acidity and aromas of ripe fruit and a hint of rosemary. Good persistency.


This bistro-style wine is great on its own as aperitif, fresh cheeses and white fish, but also with Asian foods.

About the wine maker

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. Nowadays Damien Brisset is responsible for winemaking and vineyard management.
