The first vines of the domain's holdings of Vacqueyras were planted by Pierre Marseille's father Rémy Marseille in 1959 on 10 ha belonging to his father. He added later 11 ha of Vacquyeras. 
When Rémy Marseille died by an accident the just then phamaceutical educated Pierre Marseille took over the inheritance in 1981. He has since purchased an other domain Domaine de la Vervine with 25 ha in IGP-area  planted with Merlot, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Caladoc, Marselan and Alicante grapes for red and rosé wines, and Viognier, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Muscat à petits grains grapes for white wines.
The domain covers today 58 ha of which Pierre's father's 21 ha of Vacqueyras is base for the most interesting wines from the estate.
4 hectares of the Vacqueyras vineyards bought by Rémy Marseille were situated by
Chateau de Tourreau. The mainbuilding of this place was not a part of the purchase but by the chateau was a tall building former used a for production of silk from cocoons of silkworms. In this building Pierre Marseille had his first cellar. From here the name of his compagny "EARL de Tourreau" and the names of his best cuvées of Vacqueyras.
