The domain was established in 2004. Until then the fields belonged to Jean Ezingard Domaine Les Aussilons. As the retirement was in sight Jean Ezingard sold his vineyards in Vinsobres to a Belgian business man Gérard Constant who for many years had a dream of becoming a wine grower and had been visiting wine schools in Bourgundy and in Suse-la-Rousse.
Gérard and Denise came by the purchase in possession of 10 ha of Vinsobres. When Vinsobres became a Cru only 7 ha was inside the new borders and
the rest have to be named Cotes du Rhone Village.

In 2010 the domain moved to a new place, a farm building some kilometres to the north, which have been totally reconstructed into a modern looking cellar. 


2/3 of the vineyards of the domain are situated at terraces.
