The story of our former kedger begins with a classic career path, HEC prep school in Nantes, then integration into KEDGE Bordeaux, where he took the PGE Finance course. After working in the financial sector, organizational consulting and real estate investment fund management, David decided in 2017 to give new meaning to his professional life. With a BTS in viticulture oenology in his pocket, he launched himself into the world of wine, taking over a wine estate in the Périgord region with his partner Matthieu. 🍇
From January 2019, David and his partner, are gradually buying up Domaine de Combet. Dating back to 1896 and located in Monbazillac, Domaine de Combet is now farmed organically on 30 hectares of vines. No fewer than 12 cuvées are produced here in AOC Monbazillac, Bergerac, Côtes de Bergerac and vins de France, all of which have held the Agriculture Biologique label since 2021. 🌱
The daily life of a winegrower is marked by versatility: agronomist, tractor operator, cellar master, oenologist, sales manager, HR manager, financial manager. A reconversion that, despite its many challenges, brings undeniable personal satisfaction.
