Her father Emile Bressy ran the the domain until he died in 1976 and left the domain to Marie-France. She is married to Thierry Masson. 
The next generation Paul Emile Masson helps his parents at the estate. 
The area with vines is 30 ha.

Several cuvées of Cotes du Rhone Village Rasteau are made. The difference between them comes foremost from the age of the vines. Not all of the cuvées are made every year. It depends on the vintage.
