When Robert Eden bought the vineyard in 1997, he wanted to make the best wines in the Languedoc while working in harmony with nature – that is without applying pesticides or other chemicals. He looked at natural ways of rejuvenating the soil using compost.
Thanks to biodynamic methods, the vines from Château Maris are now healthier and grow longer – and the quality of grapes is better.
Chateau Maris is now a 79-acre estate divided into a multitude of small vineyards on the hillside above the village of La Liviniere, the first Cru Classe of the Minervois, in the Languedoc region.
Ecocert certification since 2002, Biodyvin since 2004 and Demeter since 2008.
