In 1909 Jean-Louis Geniest whose family had been coopers for some generations bought a properpy of a few ha near Rhone and named it Mas Saint-Louis after the property's location. He converted the old basements with new cement tanks, some of which are still in use. He was succeeded by his son Gabriel and later his son Louis Geniest (1909 to 1990).

After Louis Geniest's death the property was transferred his son John, who was a recognized lawyer in Avignon. It is John's widow, Monique Geniest, who today is the owner of the domain. Monique was born Tramier and descends in a straight line from Pierre Tramier who in 1909 bought the Chateau de Beaucastel and became the ancestor of the Perrin family.

The wines of Mas Saint Louis has been fairly anonymous in a number of years.
Until 2010, only one bottled vintages from the 30 contiguous hectares except for a parcel of Syrah is located in the lieu-dit La Lionne in Sorgues
not far from the river Rhone.
There has in recent years been invested part in the modernization of cellars and purchased new foudres. In 2011 employees a recent winemaker Matthieu Faurie-Grepon, in collaboration with the owner and the designated heir,
Monique's nephew Vincent Tramier, has made three cuvees of red Chateauneuf du Pape and since 2013 also a white Chateauneuf du Pape and a VDF rosé.
