History of Cognac Guillon-Painturaud
The estate Cognac Guillon-Painturaud has been in the same family since the year 1610. However, it wasn’t until the 1970s that they began to bottle and sell cognac under the name of Guillon-Painturaud, as opposed to selling their wine to the larger cognac houses. All of their vines are located in Grande Champagne, and over the past three generations these have been extended to today’s total of 18 hectares.
