Domaine Lafran Veyrolles comes to the origin of the word “Rovayrola” which in 1405 designated an area planted with reopened oaks in a district of the Cadière d’Azur. Devenue “Vayrole” then the name as we know it today, Lafran Veyrolles takes its origins in the 17th century, while the area belonged to Melchion Lafran. In 1917 his great-grandfather, Romain Ventre, donated Lafran Veyrolles to his granddaughter. Her husband Louis Ferec undertook to expand and renovate the estate in 1929. Today, the Ferec-Jouve family operates the Lafran Veyrolles vineyard of 10 ha.
