This is a search for harmony between plants, animals and man, in accordance with the cycles of nature (solar rhythms, lunar rhythms). By a balance between animal and vegetable productions, biodynamic agriculture creates a sustainable soil fertility without the addition of fertilizers, or synthetic chemicals. The fruits of the earth and therefore the wine can thus express the full potential of the terroir.

It is a real natural olfactory experience in a bright atmosphere with scents of eucalyptus, cistus, lavender maritime.

In what is called the golden triangle of Côtes de Provence (Pierrefeu, Puget-Ville, Cuers), grapes from vineyards growing on the southern slopes of the Moors on schist soils.

Domain biodynamic Marlena and Paul is located in a small river valley and enjoys a microclimate. Boasting a rugged, cellar allows gravity work, without resorting to any pumping of the harvest. The wines are matured for at least 12 months in a vaulted cellar in the basement.

No synthetic chemicals (herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and chemical fertilizers) is used, respect for the land and in order to strengthen the vigor of the vines. Harvesting is done manually with a first sorting in the vineyard. The love of wine, landscape and place have pushed our winemakers to meet the challenge of an exceptional wine.
