The domain name means something like "across the slopes". These slopes have been in the family for 4 generations.
In 1931 owner's
great grandfather Elie Charavin began to grow wine at a part of the property. His son built basements in 1946 and in 1976 he started to make of his own name. 
In 1985 Robert Charavin took over the domain and made the wines of the domain known to be among the best in the appellation.

After being responsible for the domain for 32 years Robert Charavin in 2017 left the domain of his two children Marine and Paul Charavin

The domain covers 10 ha of Rasteau and 4 ha of Cairanne.
The vineyards have been certified agriculture biologique since 2010 and later as biodynamique by Demeter.
