The domain was created in 1930 and was acquired
by Jean-Claude Garcin in 1994. At that time
the domain covered 40 hectares in Tavel and Lirac. Since then a cooperation with
the Layonie family resulted in accumulation
of some more vineyards from Domaine Saint-Anthelme (20 ha of Cotes du Rhone),
Les Ramières (25 ha of Lirac, Cotes du Rhone and VDP) and Longval (10 ha of
Lirac, Tavel, Cotes du Rhone and VDP). This led to a company called Domains
Garcin – Layouni.
In 2014 domain including the vineyards belonging to the Layonie
family were bought by Elisabeth and Christian Latouche,
who also owns Domaine
de La Vallongue (since 2008) and Domaine
des Terres Blanches (since 2012) situated in Eygalières and
Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, both domains producing AOP Les Baux de Provence.
Latouche has also bought some vineyards
from Domaine du Chateau de l'Hers in
Chateauneuf du Pape former owned by Marcel Georges.
In connection to this purchase Latouche in 2016 created a new compagny
