Chateau Maris in the South of France really has a story to tell… and who better to tell it than co-owner Robert Eden. Most wine enthusiasts are probably familiar with biodynamic grape growing and wine making. However, Chateau Maris definitely takes this art to a higher level. There is probably no one who does a better job of explaining biodynamics than Robert Eden, and he takes this very remarkable wine producing art to heights you might not ever imagine. But that’s just a small part of the story. Consider this… Robert was so determined to build a facility that was one with the land that he constructed what he calls a “vegetable winery.” Believe it or not, Chateau Maris is built entirely of bricks made from hemp. Hear the whole amazing story on this installment of Grape Encounters.
