Producer
What is now the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire began as a primitive chapel in the 6th century started by Hilarius, the Bishop of Carcassonne. By 817, the Abbey was under the domain of the Order of Saint Benedict. The Abbey includes a Roman style church for the 12th Century, a Gothic cloister and Fortifications of the 14th Century. It was in the Abbey’s historic cellars where the world’s first sparkling wine was created in 1531. These are all the indications of its influence and importance in the Languedoc region in the South of France. The Mediterranean terroir and climate near the village of Saint-Hilaire, in the area of Limoux, produce full bodied red wines as well as distinctive Chardonnay wines with remarkable character aromatic and complexity.
