The Charente & Charente-Maritime wine regions are home to the aperitif of Pineau des Charentes – a fortified wine made by blending Cognac Eau de Vie with grape must. Most Pineau are white, but there are also rose and red varieties available. Delicious as both a winter warmer and summer cooler, the combination of fresh fruit flavours, rich oak flavours, and warming cognac make it a year-round treat.
