Archaeological excavations at the place have shown that wines were made at the place in Roman time and that amphoras were fabricated - at least 4 big owens for burning of the amphoras have been located. 
With great enthusiasm
Hervé Durand has made an exhibition of the archaeological findings and have reconstructed things used by the Romans to make wine f.i. a big wine press: You can discover a reconstruction of a Roman cellar.
At the domain is even made wines
following the same principles as done by the Romans
