August 22, 2022: Cognac
Today you will continue exploring the fascinating region of Cognac.
Private experience at Remy Martin including lunch
Since 1724, Rémy Martin has produced cognacs to the highest requirements of excellence.
Rémy Martin has always been a family business, run by two families who share the same values: the Rémy Martin and the Hériard Dubreuil families. It is one of the very rare houses in the region created by a family born & raised in Cognac.
Over the course of 3 centuries, a handful of extraordinary people have shaped the history of this brand – from an astronomer to the first female cellar master.
You will start the day with a short drive to the town of Juillac Le Coq for an Introduction to the Grande Champagne terroir – this is the name of the region where the grapes used for these exceptional Cognacs are grown. Visit the distillery & learn all about the process.
Then, drive back into the town of Cognac to visit the historic vat room along with the cellars where the barrels of ‘eaux de vie’ have been resting for decades.
The visit will end with a tasting before you sit down to a gourmet lunch in the private club house.
Enjoy the rest of the afternoon at the hotel.
Evening at leisure.
