Kicking off the year with a French red. There are worse ways to great 2020. See how the 2017 Ferraton Pere & Fils Cotes-du-Rhone “Samorens” Red greeted the year.
Fall is finally here in North Carolina, which means it’s time for bolder reds that can hold up to some fall classics. The 2017 Ferraton & Fils Crozes-Hermitage “La Matiniere” Red is a great way to kick off the season.
