The domain was founded in 1890 by Anne Marie's grandparents (she was born Achiary). In 1992 Anne-Marie and Jean-Marie Astart decided to carry on the work and took over the domain from where the whole production was sold to the co-operative.  In 1995 they started to bottle the wines with the name Domaine des Hautes Cances. Until 2000 Jean-Marie Astart continued working as a psychiatrist. From then he became a full time wine grower and in 2003-2004 new cellars were built.

Today the domain covers 17 ha. The vineyards are certified agriculture biologique.
