Jean-Luc Cognac Tasting Tour

I am a “Cognac Educator” officially certified by BNIC, the Cognac Interprofessional Association, and I have also followed a professional training with cognac distillers, as guaranties of quality and level of knowledge on the Cognac country that I bring to my guests. I live near the city of Cognac in the heart of the Grande Champagne vineyards, area where is the biggest concentration of traditional professional distilleries in the world. There, my wife runs a guest mansion and all our neighbours are wine makers and run their own distillery.
