Two old and well known families of Chateauneuf du Pape, Jeune and Establet, who can trace their ancestors back to the 14th century, united their properties by a marriage between Christiane Establet and Pierre Elie Jeune in 1960's, and the Domaine du Grand Tinel was born in 1972. In 1974 a winery was built at Route de Bedarrides in the outskirts of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Vinification of wine from 74 hectares (56 ha in Chateauneuf and 18 in Cotes du Rhone) could not be done in these buildings in the wanted way and therefore the buildings have been renovated and extended in 2004-2006. Today they have sufficient space for all the things needed in a modern winery and should have no difficulties in treating the yield fra all the 74 hectares, which makes the domain one of the biggest of the appellation.

The family also owns another property in Chateauneuf du Pape, Domaine Saint Paul. This domain has 14 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape and is situated at Route Sorgues. The wines from here are not made at Grand Tinel but at Saint Paul.
