The cooperative was founded in 1924, and has today 200 suppliers.
Grapes from around 1000 ha. are received for vinification, mainly from Bedoin, Saint Pierre de Vassols, Crillon le Brave, Flassan and Modène.
1/4 of the wines are Vin du Pays or Vin du Table. About 4.5 million bottles are made (including B&B). 15% of the production is sold in tank (export) or vrac (local custumers or tourists)
The production of rosé is very important and 40% of all rosé wine in the appellation is made here.
In the four communes only one private producer fully makes and bottles his wine at his own estate.
The average quality of the wines are quite good for a cooperative.
