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.
