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 vine
"epidemic" in the 1860s
were grown to a limited ecxtent.
In 1910, the property, already known as the Fourmone owned
by the Foument family was
purchased by Jules Combe and has been in Combe family'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 today Marie and her two children Albin and Florentine (5th
generation) are both
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.
