La Ferme du Mont is one of the up and coming superstars of the Southern Rhône, under the ownership of perfectionist winemaker Stephane Vedeau. When we tasted his wines we were blown away, and when we met him we quickly learnt of his meticulous attention to detail, and passion for producing wonderfully pure wines which show character, elegance and quality. He owns around 50 hectares of old vines which he tends to without the use of chemicals and pesticides, and continues with a sensitive approach in the winery, to let the fruit and the terroir shine through in the wines. These are some of the best Rhône wines we've tasted, which we highly recommend.
