Good to know: Cognac is a wine region, but it is also the name of a well-known strong alcohol. This eau-de-vie is a controlled designation of origin which must be produced exclusively in this region. A decree delimits the vintages authorized to produce the famous Cognac.

The Cognac wine routes

Angoulême, Saintes and Cognac are among the region's must-see visits. Throughout the year, the biggest houses welcome you for various tours and tastings (Martell, Henessy, etc.). As you cross the many villages with Romanesque architecture, you will find on your way a good number of more confidential wine growers, mostly producing white wine made from Ugni Blanc and Colombard grape varieties. Do not miss to taste the good Pineau des Charentes, an aperitif made from grape must mixed with brandy before being aged in oak barrels. The first route called “Le Cognac et la vigne” introduces you to wine culture. From Saintes, it passes through Saint-Jean d'Angely, Burie, Cognac and Aigre. Still starting from Saintes, the second wine route takes you to Angoulême via Jarnac and Châteauneuf-sur-Charente along the Charente. The stone route from Saintes to Gémozac or from Cognac to Blanzac is so named because it crosses the limestone soils of the region, while making you discover the Roman remains and wine cellars in the south of the Charente.
