Born in Strasbourg in 1948, Marc Kreydenweiss is heir to a family of viticulturists who have lived in Alsace for 3 centuries. He has owned and managed the Domaine since 1971. In 1984, he made the decision to exclusively produce extremely high-quality wine based on the expression of the terroir. As a result, the wines have preserved the delicacy on which their reputation was established but now contain increased concentration, complexity, and a taste that lingers longer on the palate. In 1989, these same requirements led Marc to introduce biodynamic cultivation at the Domaine. Using homeopathic treatments and practices, the soil remains alive and well-balanced, yielding healthy and high-quality grapes. In 1995, 1.5 hectares of the famous Val d’Eleon were purchased and cleared, and Riesling-the ideal varietal for grey schist-and Pinot Gris were planted.
Today, Marc manages the estate with the aid of his wife, Emmanuelle, and his children, Manfred and Antoine, who work alongside him and share his philosophy.
