Rhone Valley vintners help the planet with sublime wines Vintners Jean Orens Ferraton and his son Michel have known winemaker extraordinaire Michel Chapoutier for more than two decades. In the mid-1990s, they brought organic farming to Rhone Valley vineyards when the term was still obscure. The Ferratons, whose winery was launched in 1946 by Jean, have relied on Chapoutier’s guidance to allow the land and vines to control the destiny of the grapes grown and the wines produced. Since 1998 they’ve implemented stricter biodynamic practices and eliminated all pesticides and chemical fertilizers. While they are no longer alone in setting a modern, eco-friendly course, they deserve credit for being among the early pioneers.
