Jean-François Lénelle arrived to Rhone from Belgium in 2007. After some searching he found and bought vineyards in Cairanne and Vacqueyras together with another Belgian Hubert Toint.
A cellar
was established on the outskirts of Gigondas.
In 2015, the domain got new owners Lucien and Raymonde Do. The couple has allied themselves with Winsley Demaria as manager who stands for the work in the vineyards and
the work in the cellar.
