Why take this tour?

Cognac is not only a luxury product. It is also a terroir product elaborated by several thousands of vine-growers who are craft distillers. Explore, in this full day private tour, the vineyard of Cognac with an English speaking local guide and driver, visiting craft distilleries where some of the best cognacs are produced. Do not worry about driving, you may fully enjoy your tastings and meetings with traditional producers hidden in the vines. Week days we enter a craft cooperage (barrel making), where they produce oak barrels, to have a better understanding the ageing process of cognac. The tour includes the visit of 2 craft distilleries producing their family cognacs and being at the same time suppliers of some of the most famous cognac brands. Stops at nice points of view to discover the landscapes, the local architecture, make your most original photos. A typical local restaurant is suggested by the guide.
