Before the French revolution the property was owned by a family with the name Nalis. From this family the domain got its name. By the way it was confiscated during the revolution an sold at an auction afterward.
From 1955 until 1976 the domain got some reputation when Philippe Dufays (Dr Dufays) married the heiress of Nalys and made the wines from the estate known at several markets around the world. He increased the holdings to 80 ha.
When his son died by a tragic accident as quite young Mr. Dufay decided to sell the esate. 30 ha were sold to local winegrowers in the area and the rest to a big insurance company "Assurances Mutuelles Agricoles", today Groupama.
In 2017 The Negociant firm E. Guigal from Ampuis purchased the property.
Isabelle Ogier continues to be directrice (and co-gérant)
