In 1931 an Italian Francis Usseglio left Italy and went to Chateauneuf du Pape. Here he got job at some winegrowers. After the war he got his own property - in 1948. He had two sons Pierre and Raymond. Pierre Usseglio got his father's property and Raymond established another estate. 
Today the 3. generation is in charge. The sons of Pierre Usseglio, Jean-Pierre and Thierry run Domaine Pierre Usseglio - and two sons of Jean Pierre do some of the  "the hard work".
The domain covers 25 ha Chateauneuf du Pape, 6 ha. Cotes du Rhone and 0,5 ha IGP. In 2010 6 ha in Lirac was purchased.
The place at Route d'Orange is a sale- and showroom, and here the ageing takes place.
The vinification is done at the "original" place of the domain by Route de Sorgues. I have to link to photos at FB. from 2018.
