Domaine Patrice Magni was founded in 1993 when Patrice Magni took over the vineyards from his father. The vines are located in two lieux dits, Cansaud and Les Bosquets. One of the first moves Patrice made when he took over Domaine Patrice Magni, was to bring in Philippe Cambie to consult on the wine making and the vineyard management. From there, Magni has continued to move in the direction of being 100% organic in all his vineyard management techniques.
Due to contracts with negociants, from 1993 until 2003, much of the harvest was sold and only a small amount of wine ws able to be bottled by the estate. That changed in 2003 for the red wines. Patrice Magni has been bottling and selling their white Chateauneuf du Pape wine since the 1996 vintage.

Domaine Patrice Magni owns 8 hectares of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape. 7 hectares are used for the growing of red wine grape varietals. One hectare of vines is reserved for white wine grapes. Patrice Magni also owns 4 hectares of vines in the Cotes du Rhone appellation.
