House of Arras came into fruition in 1995, almost ten years after Ed Carr embarked on a journey to craft an exceptional Australian sparkling wine. In his search for the ideal vineyard sites, Ed discovered Tasmania’s cool climate and maritime influences, perfect conditions for slow, consistent fruit development.

The name ‘Arras’ translates to ‘rich tapestry’, reflecting the rich, diverse vineyards throughout Tasmania that contribute to the crafting of House of Arras wines. Each of the six pristine vineyard areas embody varying terroir, from inland to coastal, with each vineyard specially managed to create a specific style of grape. The ancient soils of Tasmania contribute to the complexity of flavour and character found within House of Arras wines.

Ed went on to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Champagne & Sparkling Wine Championships in 2018 for his contribution to the success of the sparkling wine industry.
House of Arras is Australia’s most awarded sparkling wine brand, winning 96 trophies and 250 gold medals to date.


This diverse region produces high-quality premium wine and gourmet food in a pristine and natural environment. The ancient forests, craggy peaks, highland lakes, pure white beaches, towering sea cliffs and quaint towns throughout Tasmania create unforgettable food and wine experiences.
