Josiane and Jean-Luc Faraud created the domain in 1995 from vineyards which had belonged to their parents: 2 ha. of Gigondas, 6 ha. of Vaqcueyras and one ha. of Vin du Pays / Cotes du Rhone.

The name of the domain is made from the provenšal word restanco, which are the name for the walls you build if the vineyards are very sloping.

Until 2006 the grapes were delivered to the cooperative. In 2007 a new cellar was ready for the first vintage bottled at the domain.
Since 2012 the vineyards are certified agriculture biologique.
