The founder of what became Clos du Mont Olivet was Romain Jausset the father-in-law of Seraphin Sabon, who inherited what Jausset had bought of vineyards in Chateauneuf du Pape. His son Joseph Sabon had three sons: Jean-Claude, Pierre, and Bernard Sabon who ran the domain for a generation with the company name Les Fils de Joseph Sabon

The young generation are now running the domain. Thierry Sabon the son of Jean-Claude Sabon is responsible for the winemaking. David and Celine the children of Pierre Sabon play their roles in the vineyards and in the office.
Bernard Sabon's daughter Mylene has in 2013 left the domain with a part of the vineyards and has together with her husband created a new domain
Le Serre des Mourres Sabon de Rocheville with the addres Avenue Saint Joseph 15 Chateauneuf du Pape - the old residens of the Sabon family.

The domain is now covering 21 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape, 12 ha of Cotes du Rhone and 1,5 ha IGP. 
As normal in Chateauneuf du Pape the vineyards are dispersed very much and are situated at 15 different  lieux-dits. The Cotes du Rhone vineyards are situated to the north near Bollène.

The buildings of the domain are situated at different places in the village. 
In 2005-06 the buildings at Chemin Bois la Ville 3 were renovated: office, tasting room and storing room for the bottled wines.
