Founded in 1860, Maison Antech is led by owner and winemaker Françoise Antech-Gazeau. Françoise took over the family estate 25 years ago, aiming to showcase to the world what makes sparkling wines from Limoux so special.

 

Through her wines, Françoise is offering a unique expression of the terroir of Limoux, full of freshness and complexity. Proudly part of our portfolio, Lady Françoise, named after Antech-Gazeau, is an AOP Blanquette de Limoux Methode Traditionelle. Blanquette de Limoux predates champagne as one of the oldest sparkling wines in the world.
