In February 2015, Marie-Laure Grangeon took over the main buildings and vineyardsfrom her father Jean-Marie Grangeon in connection with a generational change.
The buildings on site let a visitor know that there is a story behind.
This story began for the Grangeon family in 1841, when the first Grangeon took over the property.
Solid buildings remain, but in the course of time generations change. The latest in this case took place a few years ago when Marie-Laure and her husband were in a completely different careers. The "challenges" were addressed. Marie started with a year at the wine university in Suze la Rousse, while her daughter continued her commercial training.
The current 10 ha. vineyards are divided into 6 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape and 4 ha of Cotes du Rhone or IGP. Potentially planted vineyards will be 14 hectares when new plants (Cotes du Rhone) can be included.

They have so far established a tasteful tasting room, and could present the first "homemade" wines (Chateauneuf du Pape 2015) at Les Printemps in 2018
