Corinna Faravel was born in Germany and for years she worked at different domains in her home country making white wines. In the late 90'ties she participated in a wine tasting course in Suze la Rousse. Then she decided that her future should be devoted to making wines in southern Rhone. 
Maybe the decision had something to do with the fact that she met Thierry Faravel, who together with his brother and sister runs one of the best domains in Gigondas Domaine Bouďssičre

She married Thierry Faravel but wanted to make her own wines and therefore in 2000 she bought 7,5 ha. of vineyards situated in the Ventoux appellation. Her first bottled vintage was 2004. Later she bought 1 ha. with old Grenache vines in Lafare. In 2006 additional 3 ha. in the Beaumes de Venise appellation.

The wines were until 2008 made in a rented building in Beaumes de Venise, but since vintage 2009 the wines have been mnade in a new cellar in Lafare. Here at the one ha with old Grenache is also built a domicile for Corinna and Thierry.

Vinification and ageing take place in cement tanks. No wood was used.
The vineyards are since 2012 certified agriculture biologique.
