The Geffard Henri estate

Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne Premier Cru, the Geffard family has been making Cognac since 1840. Already five generations of winegrowers, from father to son and today, with their 2 children Karine and Stéphane, they continue the tradition.

The family owns 30 hectares of vineyards of which 15 hectares in the village of Verrières and 15 hectares in the village of Juillac le Coq. The vines are 40 years old on average, with 90% Ugni Blanc grapes and the rest Colombard. The soil is very calcareous, together with the microclimate ensures that they can harvest until October.

Harvesting, distilling, and ripening are all done by the family themselves and on their domain. The distillation is done with charentais alembic stills from November to February twenty-four hours a day. Then the barrels go into their cellars for further maturation, where the eau de vie matures in barrels to absorb the tannin from the wood giving the cognac a nice color of gold and amber.
