House of Arras makes it a Tasmanian tasting trio

Tasmanian sparkling wine specialist House of Arras has unveiled a range of new tasting experiences and joined the Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia (UWEA), a collection of Australian premium wineries offering behind-the-scenes winery experiences. 

Located in the pretty Pipers River region, 40 minutes north of from Launceston, House of Arras joinsMoorilla at MONA and Josef Chromy Wines as part of the UWEA collective in Tasmania.

“We’re excited to welcome House of Arras to the fold, bringing new experiences that take guests beyond the cellar door for masterclasses and vineyard tours,” says Kate Shilling, executive officer of Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia.

House of Arras was founded in 1995 when winemaker Ed Carr embarked on a journey to produce world-class sparkling. 

“The name ‘Arras’ means rich tapestry, reflecting the diverse Tasmanian wine sub-regions from which we source our grapes,” says cellar door manager William Doggett.

“Each of the seven pristine sub-regions embody varying terroir, from inland to coastal, with each vineyard specially managed to create a specific style of grape.

“This method of production sets us apart from other wineries and allows us to blend and finesse the grapes to craft impeccable wines.”

Visitors to House of Arras can participate in a range of tasting experiences. 

During the Sparkling Scholar tasting, they can gain an intimate understanding of the range, including vintage and non-vintage methode traditionnelle wines.

As part of the Wine, Wildlife and Vineyard Tour, guests can embark on a guided tour through the vineyard, glass in hand, to discover the intricacies of vine training, harvesting and sustainable practices. This tour often includes encounters of the furry and feathery kind, including wedge-tailed eagles, scarlet robins, platypus, white morph goshawks, hares, rabbits, and even the odd goat!

The Premium Arras Masterclass & En Croute Packagincludes a sparkling masterclass, a guided vineyard tour, and a chance to relax on the open deck with a glass of wine and selection of toasted brioche gourmet sandwiches.

House of Arras shares its country location with Bay of Fires Wines, providing guests with the opportunity to explore both wineries during a single visit.
