The André family has owned the property since 1910. 

In 1951 Patrice's grandfather was part of the founding of the cooperative and the grapes from the property were delivered there until 2002 when a new cellar was built on a slope with 9 metres difference between where the grapes are received and where the ageing takes place. In this way any pumping can be avoided. 

The domain covers 30 ha, 15 ha in Rasteau, 14 ha in Violes (Plan de Dieu) and 1 ha in Sablet.
