Laurent Bellion's great grandfather founded the property in 1919 growing céreales, fruit- and olivetrees and in a small scale vines. His grandfather Ismael increased the holdings, but it was his father Lucien Bellion, who made vines the main crop delivering the grapes to the cooperative. In 1997 Laurent after having finished his agricultural education (BTA) joined his father at the domain and three years later in 2000 he took over the domain - still selling the grapes. After a decennium he decided to make the wines himself and his first own made vintage was 2011. The name of the domain was chosen from a local name of the area, but also to bring associations: "I liked the idea of playing with the word Eyguestre, which means water. Water is often contrasted with wine is produced but it is also the basis of the life of the vineyard.
That is why I chose to drop my field  
The property has a total of 20 ha of the highest situated vineyards in Seguret gathered around the domain. In 2016 grapes were delivered from 12 hectares to the cooperative while grapes from 8 ha was vinified by Laurent Bellion in another producer's cellars. A portion of the wine from the 8 ha were sold to negociant.
