A forefather of Dominique Ay, Eugène Raspail, founded a domain in 1854. At that time the two domains Chateau Raspail and the fields of Domaine Raspail Ay were included in the possessions of Eugène Raspail. The descendants of Eugène Raspail divided the possessions and Domaine Raspail Ay became an independent domain.
Today Domaine Raspail Ay is run by Dominique Ay who for many years was the president of The Syndicat of Gigondas. His son Christophe and his daughter Anne-Sophie both work at the domain and is both spoken for

The estate covers 19 ha of Gigondas. All of them situated around the property.
