Would you like to learn about Cognac in the most immersive way possible?

Tasting is an art form, and we believe everyone should learn how to savor Cognac in this historic French region.

That’s why we offer dedicated Cognac tasting events and masterclasses - all from our private estate in France, the Logis de Beaulieu. We offer sessions in English, French and German, and welcome people from all over the world to dive into the world of eaux-de-vie.

We want you to experience the Charente in the most authentic way possible. After all, our red salon has been at the heart of our tasting sessions for generations. We love nothing more than making memories over a snifter glass of our favorite Cognac.

Come and stay the night at our family château, and learn from the founders of Cognac Expert in an exclusive environment. Read more about your hosts, Sophie and Max.

Your tasting class is tailored entirely around you. Give us an idea of what you would like to experience, and we’ll make it happen. To name but a few of the possibilities, you can:

  • Learn about the production and history of Cognac in a unique masterclass
  • Take your tastebuds on a journey, as you discover the joy of food pairing. Enjoy your dinner with Cognac in our home; with each course selected carefully by Sophie and Max

  • Meet some of the local producers, some of which are close friends and partners
  • Discover different Cognacs and learn how to taste like a professional

Our estate is the perfect base to explore the surrounding region. The changing colors of the Charente countryside provide the perfect backdrop to your Cognac tasting in France - no matter the season.

Cognac is more than just a drink. It’s a way of life. Get a glimpse into the lives of farmers, distillers and master blenders behind each closed cellar door - by learning how to taste Cognac at the heart of it all.

Visit Cognac and wander through vineyards on a hot summer’s day; cool off in a medieval cellar, and venture through the rolling hillsides of each terroir.

And in the colder months, relax in front of a roaring fire with a glass of your new favorite Cognac in our salon.

Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it?
