The first generation of the Polish family Chudzikiewicz arrived to Rhone in around 1900. A son from the family married a daughter from Amouriers in Vacqueyras and since then the Chudzikiewicz family have been owner of the domain.
Jocelyn Chudzikiewicz who was an educated oenolog took over from his father in 1979 and ran the place until 1997 when he was tragically killed in a trafic accident. His son Igor was at that time only 15 years old. Patrick Gras who worked in the cellars together with Jocelyn Chudzikiewicz then managed the domain until Igor in 2008 had finished his oeological education and spent som time at wineries in South Afraca and Australia.
Today Igor and Patrick run the domain together.

The name of the domain "Amouriers" is the provencal word for "mûrier" = mulberry, referring to the trees growing in the fields of the domain at the time when silk was an important source of income in the area.
