We approach wine differently. It starts with the name: Figge (“Fig-E”) doesn’t exactly say corporate, mass-marketed mega wine in vogue these days. That’s just not us. And our name, like our wine, is about one thing: Authenticity.
Figge is the brainchild and life’s work of winegrower Peter Figge, who flung the doors of the winery open in 2004. His passion for wine knows no bounds. That’s why he’s the grape grower, the winemaker, the bottler – you name it. Peter is involved in every last detail. Obsessive – compulsive? Maybe. He’s just that committed to doing whatever it takes to make sure the Figge bottle on your table is unforgettable, every time.
Figge brings you only the most exceptional vineyard-designated, small-lot production wines. Quite simply, we produce California wines in the time-honored, handmade manner they were meant to be. The care and passion devoted to every grape can be tasted in every sip.
Figge is not Napa. Nor are we Sonoma. We proudly create wines from the cooler climate and nurturing terrain of Monterey, with grapes hand-selected from prestigious local vineyards – Pelio, Paraiso, River Road and Sycamore Flat. This gives each bottle a distinctive sense of place, capturing the subtle flavors that come alive from each individual hill, row and vine of Monterey.
So what does all this mean to you? Figge Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Rosé. Classic, handcrafted California wines that capture the art & soul of wine growing.
