The property has existed as a residential property since 1765.
The main crop was then wheat, but it was also in the period before the arrival of the wine in the 1860s that wine was grown to a limited extent.
In 1910, the property, already known as the Fourmone
owned by the Foument family was purchased by Jules Combe and has been in Combefamily's possession for five generations. Gradually, wine production came to mean more and more until vines gradually became the single crop. Faith against history an wheat branch today is used as a symbol at the labels.
For a number of years, the domain was run by the two sisters Aline and Marie Combe, but now Marie and her two children Albin and Florentine (
5th generation) are all working on the domain.

The domain
covers a total of 37 ha : 20 ha of Vacqueyras, 10 ha of Gigondas and 7 ha of Cotes du Rhone / IGP from which are included in production of the three Vin du France (Le Burle)
