Château de Montifaud a cognac house with a long history dating back to 1837 when Augustin Vallet began the Château de Montifaud, they are even six generations in the Vallet family so that they have the experience to put fine Cognacs. Château de Montifaud uses only its own grapes from their own vineyards, these vineyards we find in Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne in France. The vineyards of Château de Montifaud are approximately 75 hectares and are located in the region of Charente and Charente-Maritime which is situated in the west of France just above Bordeaux where we also find other vineyards a few renowned brands. As we mentioned the Cognacs Chateau de Montifaud come from own vineyards, but also the production of Cognacs done in-house. This is something you will not encounter much more at many other producers of Cognacs. For ripening of cognacs they use 350 liters barrels of selected Limousin oak wood which has to dry for three years. At Château de Montifaud are still barrels in the cellar from the 20s
