Located over the Bassin of Thau and all along the Via Domitia, the Vineyard was created in 1330. It was the property of a religious order: the Holy-Spirit order. During the religious wars, monks abandoned their properties. Several families took care of the vineyard but its name was given by François Engarran in 1595 when he became the owner. By the end of religious wars, the monks wanted to get the property back. Then, started a long justice battle between Pierre Engarran and the Holy-Spirit order. In 1611, Pierre Engarran was declared official owner of the vineyard by the Parliament of Toulouse. The vineyard then remained in the Engarran family until 1652.
