Winemaker notes

The Domaine is located in the lieu dit of La Pétière in Saint-Fiacre with the word “Combe” referring to a topographical feature, somewhat like a valley, where the Domaine is situated. The vineyards are situated on the banks of the Sèvre river, with southern exposure, the only such lieu dit in the Saint-Fiacre village with this favorable aspect. The 12 hecatres of vineyards of Domaine de la Combe represent a monopole of their unique La Pétière terroir. Pierre-Henri Gadais, fifth generation of the Gadais family, has taken the reigns as winemaker for the family’s new domaine.
