Local culture

In the Haute Saintonge region, agriculture has retained its place, including organic. Most towns, even small, have a local-produce market on a regular basis.
We must not forget Cognac with its acres of vines which produce Cognac and the apéritif Pineau for a world market.
The fascinating process, little changed over the many years of its history, can be seen in the various ’Cognac houses’.
