Did you know that the world's first sparkling wine was made in Limoux? Let's give them a round of applause because what would this world be without any bubbling pleasure?
Sieur d’Arques is a team of passionate and hard-working wine lovers, and as a result, they produce magnificent wines. Sieur d'Arques has been producing first-rate Sparkling wines since 1946, located just 15 miles from one of the most charming cities in France and Europe, Carcassonne. The area is filled with historic towers and castles that take us back to Gallo-Roman times. In addition, they have a spectacular terroir, a Mediterranean climate, and clay-limestone soils that are ideal for sparking wine production.

It is known as a Non-Vintage (NV), which is a sparkling wine that is made from a blend of different years. This is to achieve greatness and balance in the wine, combining the best of different vintages to create a harmonious wine.
