The Arton estate opens its doors to you.

Dive into the heart of Armagnac, the oldest French brandy, and discover the secrets of its production. Follow the commitments of our family, who for 40 years have been taking the Gascon brandy out of its entrenchments to produce a rare Haut-Armagnac AOC: young vintages with unequalled aromatic power, a perfect expression of our terroir which highlights the living nature of Armagnac and imposes a new criterion of excellence in the region.

After a guided tour of the estate, come and taste the whole range of our Armagnacs d'auteur, our hand-crafted blends, our vintage vintages and our Fine Blanche®, the one that gave its name to the AOC Blanche d'Armagnac, during a commented tasting with gourmet pairings.

What a fun and interesting tour we had from the host. Big plus for the biodynamic way of viticulture. We received an explanation about the production process of the Haut Armagnac followed by a delicious tasting. Recommended!
