The Mayard family has been winegrowers for 5 generations. Didier, Françoise (the winemaker) and Béatrice manage 43 hectares in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation with a production of about 140,000 bottles including 10,000 to 15,000 bottles of white. 
Clos du Calvaire was founded by the grandparents of the owners today Marie Louise and Alphonse Mayard who were pioneers of sales in bottle. Their sales register (dated 1923) shows a large commercial activity. The base of their domain was 17 ha at lieu-dit Les Coulets, still belonging to the family.
8 ha at Le Crau are delivering grapes for the signature wines of the estate.
