HINE is the privileged owner of an exceptional 297 acres estate, Domaines HINE, at the heart of Grande Champagne, the finest cognac cru. Situated in the small parish of Bonneuil, the gentle slopes of the HINE estate overlook the picturesque Colinaud valley. The estate is planted with 173 acres of vines with an average age of 25 years and the remaining land is covered in woodland to protect the local flora and fauna and favour biodiversity. The entire estate is managed using environmentally-friendly techniques.
The HINE estate benefits from a south-facing aspect, which maximises the long hours of sunshine and heat — ideal for ripening the grapes to perfection. The cognacs from this premier cru are particularly appreciated for their great finesse, floral bouquet, elegance and long ageing potential.
