The domain was establised late in 2013, when Jean-Frédéric Bistagne bought a cellar and some land belonging to Bernard Dusiegneur, who has removed his activities to  Chateauneuf du Pape.
Jean-Frédéric Bistagne has en education from INSEAD
from Institut national and has since 1990 been CEO in some electronic firms in France and abroad.
He has chosen to change to be a full time winegrower. The area of vineyards bought from Dusiegneur are 8 ha of Lirac and 8 ha. of Laudun.
In 2015 Mr.
Bistagne has bought a parcel at lieu-dit Fargueirol in Chateauneuf du Pape of 0,5 ha planted with Syrah. He will probably look for a parcel with Grenache to make a more traditional Chateauneuf du Pape.
It has been important for
Jean-Frédéric Bistagne to continue the traditions from the former owner's biological and biodynamical methods in the vineyards and in the cellar. Therefore he has a near cooperation with Frédéric Duseigneur, who after his seperation from the brother Bernard Duseigneur has established himself as an advisor of biodynamical viticulture and vinification
Jean-Frédéric Bistagne: "
The Domaine des Maravilhas endeavors to keep a high portion of the land uncultivated (>20%) so as to maintain a natural habitat for the vine insect-pests.... After years of practice and observation Frédéric Duseigneur knows that to produce grapes of superior quality the vines need more than just nutrients. The vines requires a more refined, and more spiritual nourishment brought by a flora and a fauna that are kept as rich and diversified as possible –as well as strong relationship with the winemaker.
Such is the approach and the experience that he is passing on to us and such is the legacy we intend to perpetuate at the Domaine des Maravilhas".
