Land of savours, the Haute Saintonge area has a wealth of quality products and flavours to be discovered, promoted and shared.
Cognac and Cie
At La Maison de la Vigne et des Saveurs, Cognac World origins are explained to visitors through a scenography dedicated to the AOC, crus and varieties of vines’ history, but also growth cycles of vines, Cognac and Pineau production as well as vine and cooperage related professions. A wall covered in shades of local spirits, a fun and interactive olfactory display and quotes from local authors to read or listen are set up to awake the mind and senses.
The tour depicts all the steps of the production of Cognac, and is addressed to children as much as to more informed recipients.
Activities around spirit drinks
Foodies may also sign up for cooking classes and tastings supervised by chefs and oenologists.
Guided visits, event by local producers, equipped meeting and conferences rooms (up to 150 seats) are also available.
Free admission for everyone
