History: The best source is the owners. Especially when it's done shortly and with a hint of humour:

"The property has belonged to the Betton family for more than 10 generations and initially a variety of crops were grown – vines of course, but also vegetables, fruits and even the madder plant which was notably used to dye the trousers of our soldiers in 1914. The famous madder red, very discreet and very sober!

1971 The domaine is named
In 1971 Gilbert Betton gave the estate the name Domaine de Magalanne in honour of his daughters Magali and Anne-Marie.

1985 100% Wine grower
Following the Côtes du Rhône classification of all the vine parcels in 1985, Gilbert gave up mixed crop farming (apricots, cherries, …), very expensive in terms of labour and not very profitable, to concentrate solely on wine-making.

1988 André Crouzet
When Gilbert Betton retired in 1988, his son-in-law André Crouzet took over the estate. André Crouzet ran the estate alone until 2004 when Jean-Baptiste, having recently completed his business studies, joined him.

2006 Jean-Baptiste and Julien
When André retired in 2006, Jean-Baptiste took over the reins of the domain until his brother Julien came into partnership with him in 2010, bringing with him his professional experience as a wine merchant in one of the department’s wine-growers’ cooperatives. They have been presiding over the destiny of the estate ever since."

The 25 ha belonging to the domain are devided with lots of parcels in 5 communes, Domazan, Estézargues, Montfrin, Théziers and Saze.
