Before the French Revolution the fields belonged  to the Convent of the Ursulines of Beaucaire - a religious school. The name "Morgues" is a religious word ( in Provençal ) referring to this former ownership. Gres means in French sandstone. In the courtyard, the sundial bears the motto "SINE SOLE NIHIL" - nothing without sun. It's shown at the labels of the best red and rosé wines.

In 1990 François Collard returned to his family's domain after having finished his agricultural and oenologic studies and after getting some practical experience at  Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Médoc. In 1995 his wife Anne joined him and has helped him marketing the wines.
Since 2014 the vineyards have been certified agriculture biologique
