OUR STORY

WINE WITH STYLE & LEGACY

A vision to craft world class sparkling wine led Ed Carr to Tasmania. The cool climate, pristine environments and ancient soils are perfect for crafting world class sparkling wine.

OUR HISTORY

1988, ED CARR EMBARKED ON A JOURNEY

He was dedicated to craft exceptional Australian sparkling wine, equal to the world’s best. And by 1995, House of Arras was founded - the name ‘Arras’ means ‘rich tapestry’. Today, House of Arras is Australia’s most awarded sparkling wine brand with an unparalleled reputation.

OUR WINEMAKER

MEET THE PIONEER AND WINEMAKER, ED CARR

Ed Carr's relentless pursuit for excellence, passion, skill and determination has made him responsible for putting Australian sparkling wine on the global wine map. Ed was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Champagne & Sparkling Wine Championships 2018 for his contribution to the development and success of the sparkling wine industry. He was the only non-champenois winemaker to receive the award, a testament to the world-class credentials of House of Arras wines.

Arras is made by a quietly spoken genius, Ed Carr, whose name should be known around the world. He is, by some considerable distance, Australia’s greatest sparkling winemaker

OUR HOME

THE ANCIENT SOILS AND COLD CLIMATE OF TASMANIA

For more than a decade, the House of Arras team has identified and developed the ideal vineyard sites for world-class sparkling wine. This journey has led the House of Arras to call the ancient soils and cold climate of Tasmania home. Its climate is significantly cooler than the mainland, with long summer daylight and maritime influences, which are ideal conditions for long, slow and consistent fruit development.
