Château Maris is 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. Château Maris practices both organic and biodynamic viticulture and is certified by Ecocert, Biodyvin and Demeter. Château Maris is the first European winery to achieve Certified B Corporation status from B Lab Europe. Already a leader in environmentally responsible winemaking, Château Maris is joining a global movement of people using business as a force for good™.

The building in which they make their wines, the chai, is environmentally efficient, with zero carbon emission. It is a ‘vegetable’ building using only renewable raw materials – hemp lime bricks supported on a wooden structure – and therefore completely recyclable.

Château Maris is run by a small, dedicated team of people passionate about making high quality wines in an environmentally friendly-way. B Corp is a natural extension of the mission at Château Maris to seek out innovative solutions to reduce our environmental footprint throughout the winemaking process while producing high quality wines from certified organic and biodynamic grapes.
