In 1931 an Italian Francis Usseglio left Italy and went to Chateauneuf du Pape in France. Here he got a job at some winegrowers. After the war he got his own property - in 1948. He had two sons Pierre and Raymond. Pierre Usseglio got his father's property and Raymond established another estate Domaine Raymond Usseglio. From vintage 2004 it's the 3rd generation, the son Stephane who has been in charge.
The property covers 16 ha of AOC Chateauneuf du Pape by which one is with white varieties and 5 ha of Cotes du Rhone and 3 ha of IGP.
