Marc Kreydenweiss inherited his family’s vineyards in Andlau in Alsace in 1971. He then became one of the precursors to Biodynamic viticulture during the 1980’s. With a flourishing set of vineyards and exceptional quality wines, and an equally flourishing family of willing sons, Marc decided to leave the Alsace vineyards and build a vineyard in the Southern Rhone, in the Costières de Nîmes appellation.
In 1999 he purchased 6 hectares of very old Carignan vines (at that time an endangered variety). He planted syrah, mourvèdre, and some whites including a curious field of north meets south (Vermentino, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Muscat). The balance of limestone, rich clay soils, rolled river pebbles famous in Chateauneuf du Pape and old vines gave Marc and his family the possibility to create Biodynamic red wines of stunning depth, yet with striking energy and freshness. The domaine now produces 18 hectares, all around the family home. Inter-rows are sewn with a variety of complementary crops to increase microbial life and encourage earth worms to head deeper and deeper into the soil, giving life and the possibility for the plant roots to follow.
