The Heritage of Château Montifaud

The young Augustin, the family’s first generation of winemakers, established the Château Montifaud winery in 1837 and today, Laurent, the sixth generation, is the one running it. The vineyards are located in two well-known Cognac regions, on an area covering 130 hectares of vines. The winery’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean is a great advantage. Although rain is common, the vineyard rarely experiences droughts and the winters are mild. The exceptional location also enables Château Montifaud to produce perfect fruit for Eaux-de-vie.

The Vineyards of Château Montifaud

The soils in this area are rich in active limestone and chalk, which is an important element for high-quality wines. Château Montifaud grows Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche, and Colombard used in the production of Cognac and Pineau Blanc. They also produce Pineau Rouge from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The vines are harvested by hand, choosing only the healthiest grapes, and the wines are later aged in Limousin oak barrels to achieve a floral and fruity character.
