COGNAC & PINEAU
Cognac and Pineau are the special drinks of the Charente.
Cognac is world famous and does not require any further explanation. The one and only Pineau is made in Charente.
Pineau is appreciated by the French as an aperitif before dinner, but almost unknown to foreigners. It is a white or red aperitif made from grapes with a flavor between Sherry and Porto. Almost all Charente winemakers make the delicious Pineau alongside their fine wine and or cognac.
