The Plantevin family have been farmers in the area for more than 150 years.
It was the sixth generation Laurent Plantevin's father who planted vines at all the 25 ha. selling the grapes to the local co-operative. At this estate Laurent was born and grew up and today he lives here together with his japanese wife Akiko.

Some years ago his father bought a big and old mansion in Violès together with 5 ha of vines. The buildings had fallen into disrepare but are now restored and Laurent's parents live here and offer several gîtes for turists.

In 2007 when Laurent had finished his education (BTS in acriculture in Macon and oenologic and viticulture at Lycée Viticole d'Orange), it was decided to start bottling of a part of the wines at the domain. As there were no cellar he started to make wines in the corner of his father's hangar where the machines used in the vineyards were stored. 
When you want to leave a cooperative you have to wait for a period and therefore Laurent is not allowed to use all the grapes to make his own wines
In 2012 he was allowed to make wines from 16 ha. 
The building where vinification takes place has not enough space for making wines from 30 ha and therefore he plans to build a new cellar as soon as possible.
The new cellar will be situated at D7 near Roaix because the trucks to load sold wines can't pass the road to Laurent's home. 

The domain covers some 30 ha. in Rasteau (1,5 ha.) Seguret (8 ha.), Sablet 12 ha.), Plan de Dieu (5 ha.) and Cotes du Rhone (5 ha.). 
The vineyards be will certified agriculture biologique from 2013.
