Domaine des Bosquets is owned by the Brechet family, who also owns 
Chateau de Vaudieu
.

Records from
1376 mention Vinea culta on a lieu-dit in Gigondas called Bosquets. The oldest documented building at the domain's current location dates back to 1644 when a feudal lord Jean de Rivière, Seigneur de Laval, built a bâtisse on site. A renovated tower from this period is situated by the domain. In the latter half of the 1800s the property was for a period owned by Eugène Raspail, who built Chateau Raspail in Gigondas.
Domaine des Bosquets was bought in 1962 by the legendary Gabriel Meffre. It's his grandchildren, the brothers Laurent and Julien Brechet, who run the two domains today. Laurent is in charge of Vaudieu and since 2006 Julien makes the daily decisions at Domaine des Bosquets. The estate covers 26 ha of Gigondas.
In recent years some investments have been made in a modern vinification cellar and an ageing cellar and a very nice tasting room has been established.
