Conte et Filles
The Conte et Filles vineyard is family-owned and has existed for 5 generations, anchored in the limestone valleys of Charente. Today, it is the two sisters Blandine and Anne-Laure who invite you in for a taste of their world and passion for agriculture with every sip of their Cognac, wine and Pineau des Charentes offerings.
History of Conte et Filles
In 2011 Anne-Laure and Blandine Conte took over the family business, that was started by their great-grandfather Coiffard in 1860. They are now the fifth generation to take over the family business, anchored in the limestone valleys of Charente. While their father had already installed an alembic still back in 1989, Anne-Laure and Blandine took over responsibility for the 150 hectares of farmland mostly used for grain and cows. However, 17 precious hectares are indeed reserved for wine production as this is where the vines grow to make Cognac.
Conte et Filles Today
Sisters Blandine and Anne-Laure share their passion and profession, continuing on in their family member’s footsteps and working hard to farm the land and grow the vines with respect for nature and organic fertilization. In more recent years the Conte et Filles vineyard has been expanded to 25 hectares and has areas covering the Petite Champagne, Fins Bois and Bons Bois crus of the diverse Cognac region.
