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.
La rigoureuse certification internationale Demeter a été obtenue en 2008.
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.
The soils were dead when the vineyard was purchased in 1997. The decision was quickly made to bring the earth back to health by using more natural, organic methods. Ecocert certification was obtained in 2002.
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.
