Cognacwinetours.com has been personalising Cognac & Wine tour days for the past ten years to enable you to discover how Cognac and Pineau are made. Visits include tastings of Cognac & Pineau at highly respected producers. Beyond Cognac we tailor visits to the prestigious wine regions of Bergerac in the south west and Saint Emilion in the region of Bordeaux. 


When it comes to knowing what to show you and where to visit it helps that we actually live in the wonderful Cognac vineyard area.


This tour entreprise is not a 'Travel Agent' so you will need to make your own arrangements for accommodation and travel to France & the region of our tours. 


All Enquiries & Booking Requests receive personal attention from the planning stage right through to accompanying you on the day of your tour.              

Each Cognac or Wine day is individually tailored so close attention will be given to your personal level of interest.

No risk of your day being cancelled due to low bookings as you will not be sharing transport with other visitors.

On the day of your tour we collect & return from your accommodation, railway station or port in the tour area.


  •  More detailed information on our Wine Tour regions can be viewed at our dedicated website Bacchus-Wine-Tours.com
  • Tastings are for those over 18 years of age.


The aim is to provide you with an enjoyable informal tour which you will find both interesting and informative.  We therefore suggest your itinerary includes a visit to at least one independent producer who will delight in sharing years of  knowledge and demonstrating the process involved in producing both Cognac and Pineau.  These very enjoyable exclusive visits are conducted at a relaxed pace and are extremely informative with the opportunity to ask questions as well as having the pleasure of tasting excellent Cognac & Pineau.

SO WHAT IS COGNAC - IS IT A TOWN or IS IT A SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE?  Well actually it is BOTH!

COGNAC -  A small city situated in the department of Charente part of Poitou-Charentes, now in the newly formed region Nouvelle Aquitaine in the South West of France.  The department derives its name from the River La Charente, which together with the special terroir is vital to the success of this magnificent area of vineyards.

The town of Cognac is twinned with Denison Texas USA, Perth Scotland UK, Valdepenas Spain & Konigswinter Germany.

COGNAC is the name permitted to be used for brandy of this region if produced from the following 6 growing areas or Cru, namely Grande Champagne (also referred to as 1st Cru, Grande Fine Champagne), Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois and some from Bois Ordinaires et Bois Communs.  The highly acclaimed Grande Champagne growth area has soil of chalk & clay, which is the same soil type as that of the famous Champagne producing area further north in France. 

So all Cognac is brandy but not all brandy is Cognac, and in order to make Cognac you first have to make wine!
