Located near Segonzac, in the very heart of Premier Cru Grande Champagne country, Painturaud Frères Cognac has a history that can be traced back to the end of the 1800s. With 40 hectares of vines planted over rolling hillsides, the main crop is composed of the Ugni Blanc grape, with a smattering of Colombard and Montils. They also grow a small amount of red grapes – Merlot and Cabernet Franc – for production of red Pineaux des Charentes.

History of Painturaud Frères Cognac
It was the end of the 19th century when the family Painturaud began to develop their Grande Champagne estate. And in 1934, Guy Painturaud took this a step further to develop the brand of Painturaud Frères Cognac. The estate and cognac production knowledge has since been handed down through four generations. After Guy, the reins of the family run cognac house were taken over by Jacques Painturaud who continued to drive forwards, and became the company chairman.
