Remy Ferbras Ventoux

Who makes it?

Remy Ferbras Ventoux is a brand from Rhone producer Maison Grands Serres. Remy Ferbras was the producers first cellar master who retired back in the 1980s. This wine is from the region of Côtes du Ventoux AOC. Passionate cyclist winelovers may know Ventoux from the moonscape images beamed to our TVs during the Tour de France. 

It is however, a thriving region and the wines are getting better distribution and finally getting space on shelves and wine lists.

How do they make it?

As a Southern Rhone red, it is unsurprising that this wine is a blend of that Southern Rhone holy trio – Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.  Or as they are affectionately known, GSMs. It also has some Cinsault as well. 

It is an unoaked red.

What does it taste like?

This is a wine that is medium bodied and sits lightly in the mouth. It is however, full of flavour and aroma. The wine has cherry and raspberry fruit aromas with some fresh wild herbs. Sage comes to mind. It is well balanced with softer tannins and a longer on the finish.

This a good value red and I think it could well be one that you could chill lightly in summer too!

What to drink it with?

Well, the producers recommend serving with pork and prunes. I think that would be great. But I also suggest sausages, and saucisson. It also works with truffled mash if you are looking to spice up your bangers. Other wise some grilled meditteranean vegetables and stuffed mushrooms would also be tasty.


Hard cheeses such as Manchego, Gouda and Comte.
