A RICH HISTORY OF PROMINENCE

With roots tracing back to the 2nd century, Chateau Figeac originated as a Gallo-Roman villa with the estate attached, named and owned by a certain Figeacus. Andre Villepigue became its owner, inheriting it from his father-in-law, Henri de Chevremont, who bought it in 1892.

Its modern history begins with Thierry Manoncourt, grandson of Andre Villepigue. Under his leadership, Chateau Figeac rose to be a prominent Saint-Emilion estate. He was dedicated and actively involved until he passed in 2010. He left the estate in good hands, having handed over the reins to his son-in-law, Comte Eric d’Aramon in the 1980s.
