In 2008 Denis Monnier bought the vineyards from the former Domaine Hervé Rabasse, who sold most of the production to a negociant. 

For many years Monnier has through his firm VITISUVI helped other wine growers by managing their vineyards and making their wines. Now it's time for him to make his own wines.

A new cellar will be built at the vineyards.
Caroline and Denis love horses and have two solid draught horses for use in the vineyards.


The domain covers 30 ha. of vineyards of which 22 ha are in AOC Cairanne and 2 ha. Plan de Dieu (in production from 2015). The rest is Cotes du Rhone.
Since 2014 the vineyards are certified agriculture biologique. 

The name of the domain refers to a nymph and this nice legend is told:

"In a day of great drought which dried up the sources a thirsty shepherd was herding his sheep at Combe de la Pauline facing the village of Cairanne.
He was offered by a nymph, a drink combining elegance, softness and character. He enjoyed this drink with great pleasure.
The Nymph Eyverine touched by the enthusiasm of the shepherd gave him the secret of the development of this nectar and
the privilege of growing grapes in this place where she was watching.
Thus
Domaine Eyverine
was born"
