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 cooperative. 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 some 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) his father let him have a part of the vineyards and he started to make and bottle wines with the name Maison Plantevin
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. 

The barn was not an ideal space to make that amount of wines end therefore he planned to build a new cellar as quick as possible, not by his home as it would be difficult for trucks to get the wines there but at a more convinient place near the main road situated at D7 near Roaix. 
Something went wrong in the building process resulting in a legal economic dispute between Laurent Plantevin and the entrepenuers but in 2018 the new cellar are finished and ready to the harvest in 2018.

The domain covers some 30 ha. 1,5 ha of Rasteau 8 ha of Seguret, 12 ha of Sablet, 5 ha of Plan de Dieu, 1 ha. og Roaix and 4 ha of Cotes du Rhone.
Since 2013 the vineyards have been certified agriculture biologique.
