Serve Chilled & Enjoy!

Pineau is the regional drink produced in the Charente & Charente Maritime. Both the white and red( Rosé), are developed by adding l’eau-de-vie de cognac to grape must juice then ageing it in oak barrels. The grapes for Pineau come from the vines on the limestone slopes. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc grape juice for the red pineau, and Ugni-Blanc, Folle Blanche, Colombard, Sauvignon & Montils grape juice is used for the white pineau although sometimes the Semillion grape is also introduced.
