    Hardy Cognac with Special Guest Bénédicte Hardy »

    It was in 1863 that Anthony Hardy, a London gentleman, settled in Cognac and established himself in the business of high-quality wines and spirits. Five generations later, Hardy Cognac is known for its character and for the skills of its cellar masters, custodians of a heritage handed down forever. Ambassadors and pilgrims, the Hardy family traveled the planet to make known their cognac: the Hardy style in all its forms. This will be a rare opportunity to sample some of France's finest Cognacs! Bénédicte Hardy represents the fifth generation of Hardy Cognac makers.

    Fine Wines from Around the World »

    Wine is a beautiful thing! It is a perfect complement to a meal, and a great way to unwind after a long day. Imagine lingering over a glass while watching the sun dip below rolling hills of a vineyard. Wine regions like Napa and Sonoma counties in California and Bordeaux and Burgundy in France are well-known. Spain, Germany and Italy have been producing fine wines for generations, as well. More recently, however, areas like South Africa, South America and Australia have come into their own as wine producers. Matt Hollis will take us on a trip through the wine countries.
