History of Héritage René Rivière Cognac

Jean-Jacques Vidal, head of the house, is the grandson of René Rivière and the son of Marie-Madeleine Vidal.  From its inception, the house and its vineyards have been located in the smallest of the Cognac terroir - Borderies.  The grape varieties grown include Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc, and Colombard

Héritage René Rivière Cognac Today

The stocks of eaux-de-vie that have been harvested, aged, and stored over the centuries are now in the capable hands of cellar master, Jean-Jacques Vidal.  Knowledgable and passionate, he continues in the quest of his forefathers to create only the highest quality cognacs.  This exclusivity extends to some of their cognacs being preserved in their original barrels and only bottled just prior to shipping.

Jean Jacques also shows his entrepreneurial spirit in the fact ath you can rent a holiday cottage or room on the property - Le Moulin Chez Gautier.  What a great vacation destination for anyone who has a love of Cognac.
