The Boutière family has run the domaine for four generations. Wines were first bottled in 1965 by the grandfather of the current owner, Mathieu. The domaine covers 24 ha (59 acres) with 17ha in the cru of Gigondas, 1 ha in Vacqueyras, 2 ha of Côtes du Rhône and 4 ha of IGP Vaucluse.

The Gigondas vineyards are located on the stoney, marne raised plateau around the winery and on limestone terraces in the Dentelles hills above the village. Domaine du Pesquier has not followed the modern trend of producing multiple cuvées, such that the complexity of the single cuvée wine reflects a diversity of terroir and vine ages. The Côtes du Rhône-labelled wine is actually produced from superior Côtes du Rhône Villages terroir giving a Côtes du Rhône wine of higher pedigree. The reds are fermented in stainless steel with temperature control provided by submerged radiators fed with cool water from the domaine’s well. The Gigondas wine is aged in large wooden vats (“Foudres”). The other wines are aged in concrete vats.
