Peasants opened wide valley with excellent fertile land. During the reign of King Henry IV, these lands were divided between the monks of the abbey Cartesians St.Andreas in Villeneuve-les-Avignon and peasants village Puzho. In those days, the Cartesians were representatives of one of the most influential and wealthy Orders and up to 1789 successfully developed a culture of winemaking.
