In 1925 the grandfather of the owner today Robert Servan-Schreiber bought Chateau Montfrin.
Servan-Schreiber's daughter Marie Claire was for some years married to Jacques Claret de Fleurieu, and after his early death she married the well known politician Pierre Mendes France who thus became the stepfather of Jean
René de Fleurieu.
Marie Claire died in 2004, and since then Jean
René de Fleurieu has been the owner of the estate. Together with the fashion designer
Agnes b. (Agnès Andrée Marguerite Troublé) Jen-René has a daughter Aurore Claret de Fleurieu. She is the co-responsable for the compagny

In 2011 Jean René de Fleurieu bought Domaine des Captives in Meynes, where wines from 70 ha of Chateau Montfrin (Cotes du Rhone) and Domaine des Captives (Costières des Nîmes) are vinified and you can buy the wines and the oils here
The vineyards of both domaine are certified agriculture biologique since 2013.

Since 1995 150.000 olive trees have been planted at the land of Chateau Montfrins. An oil mill Les Moulin des Ombres has been built. The plantation of the olive trees has been done in a way so the harvesting of the olives can be done by machine.
