In 1740 the first buildings at the place
were constructed by a forefather of the owner today.
They were not built to be a winery but as place for
Stables and other buildings for agricultural purpose were built shortly before
the revolution in 1760-1784.
Wine was then a part of the production. In 1791
the owner received a letter of thanks from the revolutionary army to recognize
the good wines sent to the soldiers at the front.
The main buildings at the mas were built in 1820-1863.
Wine from the domain were sent to the world's fair
(Paris) and 1873 (Vienna)
In 1975 Dominique Ricome took over
from his father. The name of his father was Charles Ricombe and he was the first
owner at the domain with this name. Charles had got the domain from an uncle
with the name Surville, the name of all owners since 1740.
In 2012 the two sons of Dominique Ricome, Basile
