Chateau Arton Armagnac
Arriving in Arton in 1978, Chateau Arton Armagnac is run by a passionate couple named Patrick de Montal and Victoire de Montesquiou who left their lives in Paris behind to fulfil their dreams of returning to their ancestral land in Gascony. With such a varied range of Armagnacs and wines available, rest assured each and every offering is produced with utmost passion and love for the craft.
History of Château Arton Armagnac
On August 28, 1978, it took just one look for both Patrick de Montal and Victoire de Montesquiou to know that their future rested at the Arton estate. A dream come true; it held the key to their future livelihood. Turning their backs on their Parisian life to return to the place where they were born: Patrick in Rieutort, Victoire found themselves back in Marsan – inspired bother passion for returning to their ancestral land and paying homage to the Gascony that they hold so dear.
With a stroke of good luck, after moving into the Arton Estate, Patrick and Victoire discovered Centenary barrels in the old cellar, meaning the prop holds a long history of wine – only for its memory to be reawakened with passion and a dream in the following years to come.
At 40 years old, the pair became winemakers, a complete change of path and fulfilling a dream that channels the spirit of Gascony. Planting their first vines in 1981, then the following in 1990, the Domaine started to take the shape that the brand recognizes today.
