It was in 1531, about 150 years before the Champagne region first produced champagne, that the monks of St. Hilaire near Limoux who had been cultivating the Mauzac grape (Blanquette), discovered natural sparkling wine, making it the Oldest Brut in the World!

Welcome to

This website specialises in French Sparkling Wine, perhaps it is the original bubbly pre-dating champagne, see history (under Information).

Blanquette sparkling wine comes in three forms Brut, Demi-sec and Doux.

Even if you like a dry wine (Brut) please do not avoid the others as Blanquette Doux is a very refreshing drink on a warm day. It is also slightly less alcoholic than the others.

Of course we have no need to tell you that drinking alcohol above the recommended levels is a danger to your health.

We have the widest choice of Blanquette available in the UK.

We specialise in Blanquette de Limoux because we think that these wines, that are only allowed to be produced in a small area around Limoux, fully deserve such a specialised website.

Many think that Blanquette equals and betters many of the sparking wines from the Champagne Region.
