The Sabon family has a long history in Chateauneuf du Pape. Quote from the homepage of the domain: "One of the oldest documented landholders in Chateauneuf du Pape, the Sabon family has controlled vineyards in the zone since 1540". Roger Sabon founded the domain in 1953. He had 3 sons brothers of which the two of them run the domain today Denis and Gilbert Sabon. A third brother Jean-Jacques was part of this team until he died a few years ago. The vinification has since 2001 been in the care of Didier Négron, son-in-law of Jean-Jacques Sabon. Denis and his son Julien take care of the vineyards. Delphine, daughter of Denis is often in the reception. Today the property covers 18 ha of AOP Chateauneuf du Pape, 12 ha of Lirac, 6 ha of Cotes du Rhone and 14 ha VDF.
