France’s Southern Rhone Valley has been a hub of wine culture since ancient times. Owner and Winemaker Stéphane Vedeau of La Ferme du Mont and his team use their passion and knowledge of the terroir to produce incredibly fine wines from this Rhone wine region. La Ferme du Mont translates to “the Farm of the Mountain” and the winery, located in this beautiful Rhone Valley, grows their grapes alongside Provencal vegetation which is tended all year long with the sole aim of producing top quality fruits. No chemicals or pesticides are used as they believe that finest of wines can only be produced in this manner.
