Environmental & Community Commitments
For us, it is important to respect the entire life cycle and not simply one part of it. Robert Eden
In 2016 Château Maris was certified BCorp, becoming the first winery in Europe to achieve this and is currently one of only 26 in the world. BCorp assesses the entire structure in five areas: governance, environment, community, workers and customers. Chateau Maris was named “Best for the World” Environment in 2017 and 2018. We continually work to reduce our carbon footprint and find meaningful ways to engage with and give back to our community.
Trees for Jane – Restore Forests
Demeter certification was obtained in 2008.
ue Demeter was created at the beginning of the 20th century in Germany by farmers. Over the decades, Demeter has professionalized to offer today:
a range of demanding and comprehensive international specifications for biodynamic agriculture and the development of processed products derived from it (food products, cosmetics and textiles)
a reliable control and certification system at the international level (nearly 60 countries).
After witnessing first-hand, the increase of living organisms in the soil present in biodynamic agriculture, Chateau Maris converted the vineyards to this method, receiving Biodyvin certification in 2004.
Maris Wines gives 15 % of sales to ASPAS Association Pour la Protection des Animaux Sauvages. The funds are being used to restore a wildlife area in the Languedoc.
