In 1930s the two brothers Achille and Leopold Granier acquired the property which at that time covered 50 ha. They built cellars able to accommodate the production of wines from 50 ha. All wine was sold to negociant. As the estate currently covers 17 ha the cellar has plenty of space. The brothers Granier began in 1972 to bottle the best part of the wines.

In 1986 Achille
's daughter Françoise Granier took over the property's buildings and parts of the vineyards. Her son Laurent Cortinas has been responsible for winemaking since he completed his oenological education in 1997. He is in practice the leader of the domain.
