Our focus

In the Cognac country, the way of life is all focused on the spirit, its angels’ share, its paradises, living at a slow pace, giving time to time for gently aging eaux-de-vie. That is the specific culture we share with my guests, bringing them away from the beaten track.

Our guests live a terrific experience, immersed into the vineyards of Cognac when entering back doors that are usually closed to the public, meeting the owners of family estates with their own distillery and let them sample "single estate" cognacs older than 40 years of age, heritages from the ancestors.

Our guests touch the finger at the history of cognac and its elaboration, the special vine-growing in this vineyards, the mentality of the people here.

Our guests do not have to worry for driving. During excursions, they may fully enjoy their tastings and meetings with traditional producers hidden in the vines, discovering nice landscapes and architecture. They can also enter into workshops of local craftsmen such as coopers.
