The name Shehelin comes from Fritz Stehelin, a German/Schwiss buziness man who in 1840 moved to Bedarrides and settled at Chateau Mont Thabor
He became the forefather of the winegrowers in Rhone with the name Stehelin.

Domaine Pallière & Pied-Gu is a relatively big domain covering 31 ha. 28 ha. of Gigondas, 2 ha. of Sablet and 1 ha. of Chateauneuf du Pape. 
50% of the production has been sold to negociant.
Two generations are working at the domain, Nicole and Frédéric Stehelin and their daughter and son Caroline and Bertrand Stehelin. In 2018 Caroline succeded her father as gérant

Since 2004 Bertrand Stehelin has made his own wine from 3 ha. Gigondas, 1,3 ha. Sablet and 2,5 ha. IGP in Sablet.
Bertrand's wines are made in his father's cellar, and the two domains will in a way merge although there will be two labels -  from Domaine Bertrand and from Domaine Pallière et Pied-Gu.
Since 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape has Bertrand's name on the label.
