Before the revolution a monastery was placed where the domain is situated. 
After the revolution there was a farm here with mixed crops - also vines. 
In 20th century more and more vines were grown in the area. 

In 1989 Vincent's father Bernard Boyer bought the property, built cellars and founded the domain. After finishing his agriculturel and oenological education (CBS) Vincent joined his father. Bernard Boyer and his wife Nicole were running the domain until February 2008, when Bernard Boyer suddenly died. The domain has since been run by Vincent Boyer and his wife
Stéphanie.

The domain's 75 ha of vineyards are located in a border area between Visan (35 ha), Suze-la-Rousse (35 ha) and Rochegude (5 ha). New plantings might result in wines of Cotes du Rhone Village Rochegude and from a the new appellation Cotes du Rhone Village Suze-la-Rousse. Vincent Boyer is president for the winegrower's association here.
Further Vincent owns a property of 25 ha, Domaine St Michel. Here the vinyards are certified agriculture biologique.
