Tour of famous wine and spirit makers in Cognac


Join Wine Tour in France for a private tour in Cognac! Cognac is a land of traditions and enchanting landscapes. The birthplace of King Francis I, follow the path of history from the Gallo-Roman city of Saintes with its Romanesque churches and medieval castles to the incredible architecture of 19th century mansions built by famous Cognac houses.

Learn first of all how eau de vie or brandy is made and the secrets that have made Cognac so renowned around the world. Visit the cellars where you’ll be invited to travel back in time through history learning the alchemy of this “liquid gold”. Taste Grand Cru Cognacs.

The region is full of fabulous places to see. Follow the path of the Charente River. Off the coast of La Rochelle, the fresh sea breezes of the islands of Aix, Ré, and Oléron await you.

Cognac is also a vibrant place where it’s great to live with lots of athletic, cultural, and musical events. Just to name a few - the Grand Pavois Boat Show, the crime thriller movie festival, the Cognac Blues Passion music festival, and the comic book festival in Angouleme – there’s something for everyone!�
