The Vicard Group is led by Jean-Charles Vicard; sixth generation cooper and the grandson of Paul Vicard, who began making barrels in a small workshop in Cognac in 1925. Tonnellerie Vicard’s “official” Cooperage was founded in 1968, by Jean Vicard (Paul’s son) and under Jean’s guidance, purchased their first parcel of land in 1970. The group has continued to grow and evolve for the past 50 years. Still family owned and operated, Tonnellerie Vicard remains 100% vertically integrated; from personally selecting wood for their barrels to their state-of-the-art cooperage in Cognac which includes a 20 acres wood yard and tank facility. This family owned hands-on approach ensures superb quality for each barrel produced. Tonnellerie Vicard, exported to the United States since 1985 is now sold in 45 countries worldwide.
