William de Courten's mother Aline Courten run (as widow) for a number of years the property Domaine Le Vieux Calcernier (Chateauneuf du Pape was until 1903 named Chateauneuf de Calcernier.) She had for some years help from her two sons Comte Christophe and William and decided in 2014 to let the two sons share the 10 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape belonging to the domain.

Williams 1st vintage 2015, was made in the family's renovated cellar at Chemin du Bois de la Ville and stored here in an underground machine house.
The two brothers have
since decided that they both will have their own cellars. There are many old cellars in village, and in one of them William now makes his wines. William has taken over his mother's sales room at 30, Rue Joseph Ducos where you will meet his English-speaking wife.

In 2015 William made 3 cuvées an Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc and two cuvées of red Chateauneuf du Pape
