In 1967 Isabelle and Christophe Sabons' parents Hèléne and Aimé Sabon took over vineyards from their two families. In 1973 they built cellars and created Domaine de la Janasse - named after lieu-dit La Janasse. 
In 1991 the son Christophe returned to the domain having finished his education BTS in both oenologi and marketing. His father then gave him responsibility for the winemaking. In 2001 the daughter Isabelle joined the family after finishing her oenological education.
