Our Water Witch
In life, it's not often that one jumps at the opportunity to accept a drink from a witch, but Marc isn't your typical witch! He's what's referred to as a water witch - and trust us, there is a big difference. When Marc was a teenager, he discovered he had the ability to use divining rods to channel energy and locate underground sources of water. He not only knows when there is water beneath the ground, he also knows how deep it is and how much water is flowing. But this skill didn't just happen overnight.
Marc has been water witching (also called "dowsing" or "divining") for over 40 years now. It all started when his high school girlfriend's father, who also enjoyed dowsing, thought it would be fun to test Marc. Marc showed an immediate affinity for the craft. What started out as a curiosity evolved into an art that he has shared with family and friends in order to help them locate strategic water sources to establish and irrigate their vineyards.
This truly amazing and proven gift earned him the endearing title of "Water Witch" and ultimately gave him an advantage as he sought to plant great vineyards throughout California. Combined with the experience he gained in the vineyard and in the wine cellar, Marc created The Divining Rod wines to honor the instrument of this often misunderstood art.
