In the past the fields of l'Hermitage belonged to the order of Sainte Cécile d'Estagel and it served as a hostel for pilgrims on their route to Santiago de Compostella.
The property of 100 ha was bought by Jérôme Castillon's father Michel Castillion and after having worked together with his father Jérôme is now in charge.

By the 100 ha only 80 ha are in production as the rest is resting without crop or just replanted . All the vnieyards are situated in one piece around the domain.
Mourvedre counts for an unusually big share of the planted varieties.
Jérôme Castillon says that first of all the short distance - 30 km - to the Mediterranean gives the best conditions for this variety.
