Figuière

For over half a century, the Combard family has been handing down the winemaking tradition to its sons and daughters.


A FAMILY DOMAINE

Magali, Delphine and François took the helm of the winery from their father Alain Combard and are proudly carrying on his pioneering spirit. Blending heritage and innovation, Figuière is a traditional winery using time-honored methods that aspires to boldly and creatively cultivate a living legacy through novel winemaking techniques.

FROM BURGUNDY TO PROVENCE
The Combard family’s winegrowing story began in Burgundy in the 1970s when Alain Combard joined his friend and partner Michel Laroche in developing what would quickly become one of the best wineries in Chablis. In 1992, the pilot, sailor and avid explorer went looking for new unchartered winegrowing country, which he found in Provence. A year later, he discovered the 44.5 acre Saint-André de Figuière estate and decided to establish himself there, steadfast in his belief that Provence rosés deserve the same place at the table as fine white wines.

A PARADISE WHERE THE LAND MEETS THE SEA
Figuière is ideally located between Toulon and Saint-Tropez, close to Lavandou and Bormes-les-Mimosas, overlooking the Porquerolles Island and halfway between the Mediterranean Sea and the Massif des Maures mountain range. Near the town of La Londe-les-Maures, the property stretches across 210 acres of vines surrounded by pine forests, cork oaks, strawberry trees and eucalyptus, and enjoys optimum growing conditions and sun exposure. No fewer than 10 grapes varieties grow there, nurtured in the wonderful schist rock terroir that gives Figuière wines their aromatic and mineral style.

ORGANIC VITICULTURE SINCE 1979

Through its determination to protect this exceptional environment, Figuière took the decision to grow its grapes organically, starting in 1979, and has received ECOCERT certification. For Alain Combard, it was a matter of pride when he took over the property to keep such pristine land free of chemical fertilizers. Alain, and later his children, firmly believed that rather than a passing fad, they had the duty to maintain rich biological life in the domaine’s soil.

WELCOME TO THE DOMAINE
Wine connoisseurs and amateurs alike can visit the tasting room, which is a unique place nestled in the heart of the vineyard. The store also proposes a selection of regional products available for sale. Exhibitions are presented throughout the year displaying the works of several different artists who share the Domaine’s own creative vision.

FIGUIERE, AND THE "ART" OF LIVING

Art is the cornerstone of the Figuière values: the art of blending, the art of winemaking, the art of bringing out the best from nature and creating collections of wines with a unique character. So it was only natural that the Combard family began sponsoring a festival of live performances called the Figuière Festival offering modern, eye-opening and offbeat theater productions, dance performances and music – a happy marriage of nature and culture in the middle of the summer.
