Eric Bonnet has taken over from his parents Gérard and Marie-Claude Bonnet.
They have with confidence - a few years ago - given the responsibility to their 
son Eric for major decisions in the vineyards and the cellar. Gérard was until the summer of 2015 co-gérant

The total area of vineyards is about 34 ha. 11 ha Chateauneuf du Pape, 5 ha. Cotes du Rhone Village, 10 ha. Cotes du Rhone and 8 ha. IGP.
Since 2014 the vineyards have been certified agriculture biologique.
Since 2013 Eric Bonnet has rented 10 ha of Cairanne from the former Domaine d'Aeria and made that year his first vintage of Cairanne.

Foudres have never been used for ageing. The number of barrels is limited as they are only used mainly for Syrah and Mourvedre in a few cuvées.
