Uchaux is not a village but a commune consisting of several small settlements "hameaux". One of them is Les Farjons named after a family who fled from Marseilles during Great Plague of Marseille in 1720. A descendant from this family André Farjon owned the property until 2011.

In 2011 André Farjon's son Benjamin and his good friend since childhood Dimitri Théodosiou has together taken over the property. Dimitri Théodosiou is the son of André Farjon's friend for many years, the tecnical director at Coteau de Visan, Theo Theodosiou.
Dimitri Théodosiou brings into the project 12 ha of AOC Cotes du Rhone Village Visan and together with them the  domain nowl covers a total of 60 ha.
17 ha. AOP Cairanne, 10 ha Visan AOP, 5 ha Massif d'Uchaux, 8 ha IGT and the rest Cotes du Rhone.
The vineyards are certified agriculture biologique since 2011. 
Biodynamic culture is used in the vineyards. In april 2012 you could see three new biodynamic generators at the courtyard and Dimitri Théodosiou was filling the tank of a new  maschine to spread "biodynamic tea".
