Marie-Pierre d'Ardhuy-Plumet comes from Burgundy, where her father Gabriel d'Ardhuy owned Domaine d'Ardhuy. Since only two of his seven daughters wanted to become vintners, he bought in 1981 a property in Rhone, the current Domaine de Cabotte. The daughter Mireille got the property in Burgundy, while the vineyards in Uchaux was handed over to Marie-Pierre, who in 1986 married Erik Plumet. The couple have since then ran the property together.
Domaine de Cabotte covers a total of 45 ha of which 15 ha are covered by forest and 30 ha are vineyards, located on the slopes of the plateau Massif d'Uchaux and assembled in one piece.

From the highest parts of the vineyards Cotes du Rhone Village Massif d'Uchaux are made and from the vineyards by the foot of the plateau Cotes du Rhone are made. The vineyards have always since Marie-Pierre d'Ardhuy-Plumet took over  been cultivated by organic principles and since 2007 they have been been certified biodynamic.
In 2005 they bought a plot of 0.7 ha in Chateauneuf du Pape planted with at least 70-years-old Grenache vines in mixed planting with other varieties. The soil here is processed by horse and plow.
