Cognac, It’s All About the Barrels

Walk through vineyards in the region of Cognac in the fall, and you will experience vast hillsides filled with nearly ripe grape clusters just a few short weeks from harvest, typical of most wine producing regions in the northern hemisphere. Walk through a cognac production facility, however, you will experience something very different than a walk through a winery.The stacks of oak barrels throughout the cellar or warehouses may be a familiar sight, but Cellar Masters themselves may first walk you through their distillery, which is the first sign you are not in Kansas anymore.  And while the barrels are familiar, the barrel regimen is a different from anything that I’ve experienced at a winery.
