I finally made it to Cognac, France with Team Hennessy!! This was definitely on my bucket list and I’m so grateful they decided to take us this year for a trip filled with education, inspiration, motivation and of course – a GREAT time! I left for this trip on May 1st and arrived in Paris on May 2nd. As soon as we landed, we had to take a car to the train station and then take a 3hr train ride to Cognac, France. We definitely had a FULL day of travel upon our arrival but I must say – the views on the train ride were GORGEOUS. Beautiful scenery and greenery everywhere! I was just happy to be there :)

As soon as we got settled, we had about 2 hours to freshen up for a Welcome Dinner at the House of Hennessy. It was great to see so many familiar faces, be welcomed with open arms and of course – delicious cocktails :) Following the first evening in Cognac, we had 2 full days of educational seminars, tours, lunches, official dinners with Hennessy Paradis and X.O and more! This trip was educational and motivational to say the least. To sit in meetings with the entire Team Hennessy from all over the U.S., meet Maurice Hennessy, see the gorgeous Vineyards of Cognac, France and to be educated on the #1 Cognac in the world was definitely one for the books. It’s truly an hour to work with some of the best men and women NATIONWIDE… actually, WORLDWIDE 😉 Scroll below to check out some of my favorite photos from the trip.
