Famille Vallein-Tercinier Cognac is one of the top Cognac producers in France. The family has a long and rich history in the region, which began with Robin Tercinier settling in Saintonge in 1480. In 1791, Louis Vallein bought the Domaine des Forges, the home of Vallein-Tercinier Cognac, and his grandson Georges Vallein started to sell cognac in 1850. Ever since, the cellar masters belong to the Vallein-Tercinier family and their secrets are passed on from generation to generation. Currently, Louis and Catherine, the fifth generation, are proud of following in the footsteps of their ancestors.
