The Philosophy of House of Arras is a simple one – to create world-class sparkling wine. For more than a decade they have been identifying and developing the ideal vineyard sites to make this happen. Their search found that the cold climate, pristine environment and ancient soils in Tasmania make for the perfect spot to make their liquid gold. Arras is driven by the expertise of Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaker Ed Carr, boasting over 34 years’ experience in wine production - 27 of those in the creation of sparkling wine. In the last 20 years Ed Carr has garnered more than 100 trophies in Australian wine shows including 21 consecutive “Best Sparkling White Wine of Show’ trophies at capital city wine shows. The art of blending sparkling wine is one that can only be mastered by perfecting the craft – something Ed Carr has more than enough experience doing. It’s for this reason the entire Arras portfolio is held back 3-10 years to give these wines the distinction and maturity they deserve to be world-class sparkling wines.
