Cognac Logis de Montifaud : The Landreau have been winegrowers for 5 generations.
The Landreau have been winegrowers for 5 generations.
In 1840, Pierre Landreau, a wind miller, realised that the arrival of the steam engine would put his job at risk. As a result, he decided to change jobs. He therefore bought a few acres at the Metairie and he became the first winegrower in the family.
Pierre, his son, followed the same ambition but enlarged the estate. Emile, Pierre's son fathered 2 sons, Paul and Pierre. Paul perpetuated the Criteuil property and Pierre bought the Logis de Montifaud in March 1959.
The oldest Cognacs aged in the Logis de Montifaud were produced by Emile Landreau between 1929 and 1959 in Criteuil La Magdeleine, one of the 28 villages in Grande Champagne.
