Born into a family of winegrowers, Jean-Pierre Pieracci chose in 2000 to develop the estate which bears his name on a plot classified Côtes de Provence located in Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer and on the territory of Cadière d'Azur, village perched on its rocky outcrop facing the medieval village of Le Castellet. These lands are planted half in Bandol and half in local wine.

In 2006, a new winery was built in St-Cyr. In 2007, the Pieracci estate produced 18,000 bottles in the Bandol appellation, including 15,000 in rosé wine and 3,000 in red and 7,000 bottles in Côtes de Provence (including 2/3 rosé and 1/3 red).
