Domaine des Relagnes existed until 2006 owned by Henri Boiron. The domain covered 16 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape and 3 different cuvées of red Chateauneuf du Pape were made, the basic cuvée, Cuvée Vigneronne and Cuvée Les Petits Pieds d'Armand. Henri Boiron's son-in-law Olivier Hillaire worked at the domain and with assistance of the oenolog Phillippe Gambie the wines got a high reputation.

In 2006 Henri Boiron decided to retire and wanted to sell the property. 80% of the fields were sold to the owner of Chateau Calissanne, producer of Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence in Lancon de Provence. This domain also owns  the buildings situated at Route de Bedarrides.

The rest of Domaine Relagnes was purchased by Olivier Hillaire who now owns 3 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape and 5 ha of Cotes du Rhone.
As Hillaire doesn't have his own cellars yet, his wines are aged in a big building in Sorgues former used to store apples. Several producers use this place, among them Henri Bonneau and André Brunel
