Château Maris | Minervois La Livinière
Château Maris is located within the of AOP Minervois La Livinière in the heart of the Languedoc, where the Mediterranean sea and the Pyrenees mountains come together. Nestled on the foothills of the Black Mountains near Carcassonne, Château Maris is considered to be perhaps the world's greenest wine project.
Winemaker Robert Eden is strongly committed to sustainable agriculture and follows organic and biodynamic principles. Consisting of 120 acres, the estate is Certified Biodyvin, Demeter, and Biodynamic and every label baring the Maris name is certified organic at a minimum. Only native yeast is used, wines are bottled without fining or filtration and they contain only natural sulphites (less than 100ppm). They plough the vineyards with Percheron horses, and have built the world’s first and only Hemp cellar: a sustainable, recyclable, vegetable-based building that passively consumes and stores CO2. Chateau Maris is also the first and only B Corp Certified European winery, one of the most rigorous sustainability and social responsibility certifications in the world.
These are exciting, terroir-driven wines, that include a white and various reds from grapes like Grenache Gris, Carignan, Syrah and Grenache Noir.
