The grandfather of the two siblings who currently run the domain Maurice Archimbaud, was the first producer of Vacqueyras to bottle wines. He established the domain in 1960 with inherited vineyards of Vacqueyras and fields at Montmirail covered by trees or scrub. During a 20-year period he extended his vineyards by clearing slopes towards the Dentelles de Montmirail and planted vines at an area of 24 ha of Gigondas. He created his cellar beside the buildings of the former health resort.
His daughter Monique Archimbaud Bouteiller continued to ru domain until she in 2013 handed over the management to two of her children Philippe and Sylvie, who both had worked on the domain, since they finished their education.
The domain covers 44 ha. 20 ha of Vacqueyras and 24 ha of Gigondas.
