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
