It all began more than six generations ago at Saint-Hilaire, where the Tisseyre-Limouzy families began to cultivate their family vineyard, which soon flourished. In the beginning of the 20th century, Eugénie Limouzy became one of the first women in Languedoc to manage a vineyard, and to strive towards a qualitative method of cultivation. In 1931, Eugénie’s niece Marguerite married fellow vintner Edmond Antech, a brilliant and upright man of exacting method who took the Estate’s destiny in hand and made it widely and commercially known.
The secret of Maison Antech’s character lies in the wise combination of Limoux’s three terroirs, which form the backbone of the cuvées: freshness from the Pyrenees, minerality from the ocean and roundness from the Mediterranean. From these terroirs Mauzac, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and other grapes are cultivated, each bringing their own complexity and purity.
