    • Château Arton Haut-Armagnac in the Gers

      Owner Harvesting 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 vines to the wine, from the wine to the Armagnac, must be produced 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 aim 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, Château Arton is also the cradle of the first white Armagnac, created in 1986.

      Become a winemaker at 40? A dream. A madness. It will be a reality. The Gascon ardor has spoken! Patrick and Victoire de Montal dared to believe and thus revive the wine destiny of the Lectoure plateau. The first vines were planted in 1991, thus resurrecting the wine-growing 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 boldest winegrowers, leaving the distorted memory of a land unsuitable for viticulture. Little by little, the estate takes on the face we know today.

      After more than forty years spent developing a demanding and innovative wine culture, 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 vintages of Armagnac published in single barrels, they have never ceased to defy prejudices, succeeding in the challenge of raising their Haut-Armagnac to the rank of best water -of French life in 2017 !

      It is this exceptional story that their children Jean and Lili de Montal decided to continue by moving to the estate. Leaving Paris in turn, they bring a new ambition, a bold environmental initiative and a major institutional and cultural project.

      Visits, tasting and sales at the estate

      Come and discover the wide aromatic palette of our wines during a guided tasting.

      On the program: panoramic view of the vines, visit to the aging cellar of our Armagnacs, tasting of our 7 wines (white, red and rosé), but especially of our Armagnacs from the Haut Armagnac appellation and the Excellence prize at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris.

    Wow! Just wow! I booked this as a part of my travels, as I wanted to do a proper tour and not just a quick tasting. Didier was amazing! He made me feel so welcome and the whole tour was fascinating, entertaining and joyful, it felt so personal, I absolutely loved it! And then the tasting, what a venue! Absolutely gorgeous. I was very very lucky as I ended up with a private tour essentially, and it is something I will remember forever and Didier's enthusiasm and passion is addictive! I would recommend this to anyone (also, Didier's English was beyond perfect, thank you so much for being so kind)

    Wonderful tour experience. The information mixed with facts was interesting. As a first-time Vinyard visitor, too much information got me bored. The wer cellar experience was very interesting. The wine tasting experience was spectacular.
