An exceptional tour that changes with the seasons

Seasonal tour at Hennessy in Cognac, France

Discover our closely guarded secrets! Available throughout the year, this tour changes with the seasons and as the eaux-de-vie are produced. Enjoy a unique, authentic experience which takes you into Maison Hennessy's most private enclaves, usually closed to the public: the vineyard and distillery.

After a personal welcome at La Richonne, our headquarters on the banks of the Charente, your tour begins in the Chai des Pavillons, on the other side of the river. You will learn about the history of the Maison Hennessy, its centuries-old expertise and the spread of its reputation all over the world.

From there, you will embark on an experience designed to reflect the seasons in the vineyard and the main cycles in the tasks that are carried out, from the growing of the grapes to the production of the eaux-de-vie and their ageing. This is why we offer an "Autumn-Winter” tour, which coincides with the distillation season, and a "Spring-Summer” tour, which is more focused on the cycle in the vineyard.

You will be accompanied to a private lounge for a special tasting. First, you will sample some eaux-de-vie that are in the process of ageing, so that you can appreciate the maturing process. Then, you will experience the art of blending, illustrated by two of our most iconic cognacs: XO and Paradis.
