    • Castle Arton Haut-Armagnac in the Gers, Harvesting Owner since 1991, in biodynamic and permaculture conversion.

      At Arton, we have dedicated ourselves to crafting the purest and most exceptional expressions of Armagnac. Everything, from the vine to the wine, from the wine to the Armagnac, must be made on the estate and in such a way as to best embody the terroir and the know-how of Arton. Our dry white, sweet, red and rosé IGP wines carry the ambition to explore the oenological potential of the Haut-Armagnac region to reposition the Côtes de Gascogne on the wine scene. Expert in vintages and unique pieces, Castle Arton is also the birthplace of the first white Armagnac, created in 1986.

      Become a winemaker at 40? A dream. A madness. It will be a reality. Gascon ardor has spoken! Patrick and Victoire de Montal dared to believe and thus revive the viticultural destiny of the Lectoure plateau. The first vines were planted in 1991, thus resuscitating the viticultural vocation of Haut-Armagnac. Because for more than 100 years, no one had ventured to replant vines in the region. The phylloxera aphid had, a century earlier, destroyed the flourishing vineyards of Haut-Armagnac and discouraged the most daring winegrowers, leaving the distorted memory of a land unsuitable for viticulture. Little by little, the estate took on the face we know today.

      After more than forty years spent developing a demanding and innovative wine culture there, Patrick and Victoire de Montal have managed to give their Gers estate its letters of nobility. From the creation of Fine Blanche® in 1986 to the development of Armagnac vintages published in single barrels, they have never ceased to defy prejudice, succeeding in raising their Haut-Armagnac to the rank of the best eau. French lifestyle in 2017!

      It is this exceptional story that their children Jean and Lili de Montal have decided to pursue by settling in the estate. Leaving Paris in turn, they bring a new ambition, a bold environmental initiative and a large-scale institutional and cultural project.

      Visits, tasting and sale at the estate

    We had an amazing experience, Lili was super passionate and an amazing story teller which made the tour really nice. The house and cellars are beautiful and the garden even prettier, with an amazing view of the winery. For the tasting they set up a table in the garden with a beautiful view of the winery which had almost a fairytale like vibe. We had incredible food coming with all the wines and the armagnac, the service was perfect! The wine tasting was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday!

    We have just returned home from a wonderful afternoon at Chateau Arton. Jean and his team hosted us brilliantly. Vineyard tours can often be pretty dull, but this had a lovely blend of education and personal story that always kept things interesting. The wine tasting part of the experience was delicious and generous. They could have charged significantly more and it still would have been great value. Many thanks to all the team!

    What an amazing discovery! I got to learn so much about the Armagnac spirit and its production ! It is clear to me that Arton is the place to learn about it, as they are both pioneers in the creation of Fine Blanche but still keep on evolving and experimenting in order to perfect and refine their product! Lovely estate with three generations of passionate wine growers ! A must for anyone wanting to learn from the best and taste the best !
