The domain name means something like "across the slopes". These slopes have been in the family for 4 generations.
In 1985 Robert Charavin took over the domain and made the wines of the domain known to be among the best in the appellation.

After being responsible for the domain for 32 years Robert Charavin in 2017 left the domain
to his two children Marine and Paul Charavin

The domain covers 10 ha of Rasteau and 4 ha of Cairanne.
It has furthermore bought 20 ha of abandoned vineyards i Massif d'Uchaux. A couple of ha is replanted each year. Debut vintage
