The property has existed since 18th
century, when it was owned by the well known Gaspary family.
Some years in the past the place was a hotel with 11 rooms.
The owner until
2009 was Johannès Pierrefeu. The vineyards was in a state of disrepair
when it was purchased by
Pascal and Lydie Franczac.
The first vintage made by the new owner was 2010.
The new owner is doing some replantings (in 2012) and when this
phase is ended he will build new cellars and maybe some time in
the future a rebirth of the hotel might emerge.
The domain covers 27 ha of which 18,5 ha is Cairanne and 6 ha Cotes du Rhone Village Plan de Dieu (in production
2015). The rest is Cotes du Rhone.
