Sieur d'Arques

In 1531, the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire produced the first sparkling wine: Blanquette de Limoux was born. Early writings indicate that it was served at the court of the Lord of the region, Sieur d'Arques. It is from this historical testament that the winery derived its name in 1946.

From sparkling to still

The leading grape varieties cultivated by Sieur d'Arques on its 2,800 hectares of AOC vineyards are Mauzac, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for sparklings or Merlot, Syrah and Grenache for reds. 

While the quality of Blanquette de Limoux, Languedoc's first AOC and one of France’s first appellations, is unquestionable, its white, red and rosé still wines, under the AOC Limoux, IGP Pays d'Oc and IGP Haute-Vallée de l'Aude labels, are equally outstanding. 

The exceptional climate of the region and the savoir-faire and the expertise of its proprietors ensure a delightfully unique taste experience.
