A few years ago the place was purchased by a Schwiss business man Werner Wunderli, who has invested a certain amount of money to build modern cellars and a luxury hotel, La Coquillade, in the middle of the vineyards.
The vineyards cover 36 hectares, 8 ha of  Luberon and 28 ha of Ventoux. As a substantial part of the vineyards have been renovated or replanted the blends of the wines have evolved through the vintages.

During the creation Mr Wunderli was supported by Andreas Rihs, former leader of the Phonak and patron of the BMC cycling team.
Jean-Marie Lobreau, an experienced winemaker, working with Christophe Feeds (Vini Concept) cellar designer was deeply involved in creation of the hyper modern cellar. Fermentation is carried out using the technological methode of Ganimede® de Tecinox.
