This was a great overview on everything about Cognac, taught by a knowledgeable connoisseur and college educator. It covered every aspect of the making of Cognac from weather and soils, grape varieties, wine making, distillation, aging, and blending. I learned a LOT in just one day. Our guide (Jean Luc) explained every aspect of the process and patiently answered our questions. We toured the general area as well as the town itself with stops at Remi Martin and a small craft distiller. It was both fun and informative. Oh, and lunch was great too! If you are interested in Cognac, I highly recommend this.
