Domænet blev oprettet i 1999 af Jean-Louis Giornal. På det tidspunkt var han revisor for vinproducenter og havde i nogle år ønsket selv at have vinmarker. 
I 1999 fik han muligheden for at erhverve 4 ha Chateauneuf du Pape og 2 ha Cotes du Rhone fra en familie ven.

Eftersom han er en ven af François Perrin Chateau de Beaucastel, fik han chancen for at være i stand til at få vinene lavet i Perrinfamiliens kældre på
Grand Prébois. Han erhvervede flere vinmarker, og da han trak sig tilbage forlod han 7 ha Chateauneuf du Pape, 5 ha. af Cotes du Rhone og 4,3 ha Vin de France med Syrah og Viognier.
I dag er det Jean-Louis Giornals datter og Florence Wesch Giornal og hendes mand Thomas Wesch, der er ansvarlig
e. De fortæller om deres projekt:

"My husband and I are both studied chemistry, and used to work in research for a Pharmaceutical company in Switzerland. We are also passionate about wine, and decided 5 years ago to give up with chemistry, and go on with wine-growing and -making. We arrived in September 2019 for our first winemaking, and our first own harvest. This has been thrilling, we learned a lot and we are so happy with this life change.
Our aim for the future is to learn with the Perrin family, and to be able to craft our own wines in the future. We want to develop the bottle market, as we mainly sell bulk wines at the moment. This would allow us to build our own cellar, and be totally independent.

From a philosophic point of view, we are not yet producing Organic wines (not labelled), but we are planning that. We are already almost organic (working on soils, very little use of synthetic crop protection products, trying to develop biodiversity, etc). We are very concerned with climate change, and try to reduce our waste (in everyday life and business life) as far as possible, and are working on the reduction of the Estate Carbon footprint."
