The name of the property comes from fallen stones in the area. It has been in possession of the family since the 18th century and then covering modest 3 ha. Later on the vineyards has increased to 11 ha of Vacqueyras.
In 2006 Eric Bouletin build a cellar and started to make his own wine instead of delivering the grapes to the cooperative.
