The domain got its name in 1969 when Roger Perrin took over from his father-in-law. In 1986 he suddenly passed away, and his son Luc Perrin became the owner. At that time he had ended his oenological studies and was working at Beaucastel. (He did not belong to that family Perrin).
During the early 80'ties a great deal of investments were made in the cellars and up to date equipment was installed.
Sorrowly Luc Perrin suddenly died far too early in 2010. As his sister Véronique Perrin-Rolin is an educated oenologist was practizing in Burgondy she was the natural successor as a manager for the domain. Her son Xavier Rolin who also has an oenological education from Macon has since his childhood often worked in the cellar of his uncle and has always been interested in growing vines and making wines. Officially Xavier took over the domaine in 2017.
