For the first time ever, 500 wine distillers met, courtesy of Hennessy, to discuss the technical issues of wine making that affect them all.

Distilling Cognac

The three half days were spent discussing many different aspects of the industry that all wine growers have to cope with.  These included the carbon footprint left by cognac production, how to save energy during the distillation process, pesticide chemicals and treatments and other sustainable development.

There were presentations given by the Chamber of Agriculture and the BNIC, along with various different workshops for the delegates to attend.  Not only was it a good opportunity for various people in the industry to discuss relevant issues together, but if things go well it’s hoped that this will be repeated again in two year’s time.
