In 1740 the first buildings at the place were constructed by a forefather of the owner today. They were not built to be a winery but as place for hunting.
Stables and other buildings for agricultural purpose were built shortly before the revolution in
1760-1784. Wine was then a part of the production. In 1791 the owner received a letter of thanks from the revolutionary army to recognize the good wines sent to the soldiers at the front.
The main buildings at the mas were built in 1820-1863.
Wine from the domain were sent to the world's fair
in 1855 (Paris) and 1873 (Vienna)
In 1975 Dominique Ricome took over from his father. The name of his father was Charles Ricombe and he was the first owner at the domain with this name. Charles had got the domain from an uncle with the name Surville, the name of all owners since 1740.
In 2012 the two sons of
Dominique Ricome, Basile and Nicolas, took over the the family estate as the 10th generation of the Surville-Rocome families
