The estate is located in the commune of Ampius on the northern Rhône in France. Réne Rostaing was formerly an estate agent, and began his wine career in 1971, when he produced his first wine from 1,5 hectares of vineyard. Then in 1990 he received a few excellent parcels of land from his father-in-law Albert Dervieux-Thaize, and in 1993 further plots from his uncle Marius Gentax-Dervieux, when these went into retirement. The vineyard area now totals seven hectares in the AC region Côte Rôtie and one hectare in the AC region Condrieu. The main grape varieties planted are Syrah and Viognier. Up to four different Côte Rôtie wines are produced, they are the basic „Classique”, as well as „La Landonne”, „La Viaillière” and a „Côte Blonde” made from vines more than 80 years old. However, all four wines are not necessarily produced in every vintage. The wines are matured in fairly new oak barrels, including 15% new barriques. Additional vineyards were purchased in the Languedoc region in 1997. Here, an AC Coteaux du Languedoc wine called „Puech Chaud” is produced.
