Our historie

 

Chateau d’Arche is a 40 hectare vineyard is located on the heights of the village of Sauternes, giving our wines the prestigious Sauternes appellation.The quality of our soil and hard work allows Château d’Arche to be ranked among the great wines of Sauternes. We received ISO 14001 certification in 2011 thanks to our efforts in intelligently controlling our impact on the environment. the vineyard, we reunite all of the elements necessary to harvesting grapes at their best potential : Soil rich in gravel and silts which give the power, flavor and finesse to our wine.

Vines averaging in age of 45 years old that produce highly concentrated grapes rich in sugars and flavor.The noble rot Botrytis Cinerea essential in producing sweet wines grows particularly well on our grapes composed mainly of Semillon (90%) but also Sauvignon (9%) and Muscadelle (1%). At maturity, the grapes are harvested 100% by hand and are subject to a rigorous selection.

To assure the quality of our wine, we often need to pick 4-5 times in the same rows of vines at different times in order to select the most botrytised grapes.Our wines then go through multiple stages in our cellars over a period of 18 months before being bottled and available to drink.

We had been at Chateau D\'Arche for the first time in 2016 and we loved the wines and the visit. We have returned this year to the Bordeaux region (we live in Brazil) and eager to return to Chateau D\'Arche. What a surprise to meet again Anthony, our friendly and wine passionate host. He showed us the new facilities and led us to a nice vertical degustation. We could bring home some bottles of the wines and soon we will have the joy of drinking it again.

The tour and tasting at Château d'Arche was superb. We did not buy wine due to an incident that happened with us same day in the morning at Château Guiraud.
