The chateau was built in the 18th century as a mansion for a nobleman Marquis de Vaucroze. The name Mont Thabor was given by Don Pernety, the founder of the sect of Illuminés of Avignon: At the property he planted trees coming from the Israeli mountain, Mont Thabor - so tells the local story.
From 1840 the place became a "Relais de Diligence", a place to stay for travellers. 
1881 the property was purchased by the Swiss immigrant Fritz Stehelin. He changed the stables and garages into rooms for wine making and at the place he engaged for a period up to 20 workers preparing thistles for use in the carding of wool.
Luc Stehelin (from 1940) expanded the wine production from the fields around the castle (Cotes du Rhone). 
Since 1977 Daniel Stehelin, has run the property today covering 4 ha of  Chateauneuf du Pape and 6 ha of  Cotes du Rhone. The average age of the vines is 70 years.
Daniel's daughter Fanny and her partner Vincent Bremond, owns some vineyards in Luberon. They make their wines in cooperation with Daniel at Mont Thabour
