Besides Domaine la Roquète Vignobles Brunier also owns Domaine Les Pallières in Gigondas and Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe in Bedarrides.

Domain la Roquette as the domaine was called until 2003 became for sale in 1986 because the owner René Laugier had no heirs to take over.
Henri Brunier bougt the domain and gave to his two sons Daniel og Frédéric Brunier.

In 1986 Domaine la Roquette (name changed in 2003), was for sale as the owner René Laugier had no heirs to take over. Henri Brunier bought the property and handed it over to his sons, Daniel and Frédéric Brunier.
The first vintage bottled at the domain was 1986. At that time the vineyard needed some care, and the cellars needed renovation to be suitable for making wine from nearly 40 hectares. 29 ha are Chateauneuf du Pape, 3 ha are Cotes du Rhone and 7 ha are Ventoux.
