Jean-Marc Autran’s great grandfather Alphonse Vautour owned a small domain with 6 ha situated at a place called Les Briguères. In 1947 he decided to move his cellar to the village where Piaugier is situated today and called his new cellar Ténébi - the name of the former owner. Two generations of winegrowers followed.
In 1985 Jen-Marc took over from his father. He bought more vineyards, expanded the old cellar and started to bottle the wines. In 1995 he constructed a cellar for ageing the wines in barriques.
The domain covers 30 ha of vineyards. 3,5 ha of Gigondas, 12,5 ha of Cotes du Rhone Village Sablet and 14 ha of Cotes du Rhone.
