Wine Tasting

Sieur d'Arques - Limoux

Sieur d'Arques, located in Limoux, 40mins south of Bram, has been producing exceptional wines since 1946. It has made a name for itself in the Languedoc region as a creator of wines which artfully marry tradition with technical know-how.

Sieur d'Arques has been working on its plot selection, from over 1,800 ha of Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée vineyards, since the 1980s.
With the Mediterranean sun and heat tempered by both the Atlantic influence and the altitude (near the Pyrenees), the terroir of Limoux boasts perfect conditions for the production of fine wines. Its traditional expertise, combined with its constant pursuit of quality excellence and technical mastery, enable it to produce fine wines to suit the palates of the most demanding of wine drinkers.

ImLorgeril - Chateau Pennaultier

Maison Lorgeril, a family enterprise, was founded in 1620 in the South of France, between the Rhone Valley and the Pyrenees.

Since 1987, Nicolas de Lorgeril, from a tenth generation family of winemakers, have been expanding their business beyond Château de Pennautier, the family’s historical birth place.

Passionate about winemaking, they have selected the best terroirs in the Languedoc and Roussillon areas (with chalky, brown and black schists, gneiss and sandstone soils) at altitudes raging from 200 to 400 meters above sea level to temper the Mediterranean heat and sun, allowing a slow organic maturation of the grapes and the development of gentle and smooth aromas.

Nicolas and Miren de Lorgeril now own 6 wineries on 9 AOC districts (Cabardès, Minervois, Minervois-la-Livinière, Saint-Chinian, Faugères, Côtes du Roussillon, Côtes du Roussillon Villages, Maury, Languedoc), and 300 hectares of vineyards.
