The authenticity of a family heritage
Originally from the Nordic countries, the very first generation of Seguinot sets foot in the Vendée department of France at the beginning of the 13th century. Sincere and generous, the family is driven by a spirit of solidarity and goes from strength to strength. Whether labourer or farmer, the Seguinots develop a cultural heritage over several centuries and a deep attachment to the land.
At the end of the 14th century, during the “Phylloxéra” crisis in the Cognac region, the family realises the long-term potential of these hitherto neglected vines. In 1890 Emile Seguinot founds his own House of Cognac. An authentic house, attached to the land and the respect of family traditions.
Today, after more than 120 years of heritage and following four generations, Gérard Seguinot is the guarantor of the continuity and development of sincere family values, a unique expertise and an exceptional wine heritage.
