After inheriting his family vineyard in Alsace, converting to biodynamics, Marc Kreydenweiss then took off to build his own 6 hectares of flourishing vineyards with his family.
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.
