Parmi eux, Marcus l’Alchimiste et son apprenti Pitchoun.
 
La foire de la Saint Jean passée, le groupe poursuit sa route vagabonde.
 
Seuls Marcus et son jeune élève restent au bourg où Vitis, le producteur d’un vin… médiocre, lui offre le gîte.
 
Bien des aventures jalonnent son installation et la vie des habitants du cru. Il en est un témoin actif.

Il échoue malgré l’aide précieuse de la sorcière Rachel.
 
Au fil de ses expériences, il découvre les vertus d’un fort agréable breuvage que le seigneur Hélion de Villeneuve baptise Marc de Provence en l’honneur de son illustre savant.
