Robert Eden is the world-renowned biodynamic winemaker and co-owner of Château Maris, Europe's first certified B Corp business. After working with many renowned oenologists around the world, Robert fell under the spell of La Livinière in southern France and moved to Château Maris in 1997.

With a desire to produce high-quality wines that respect the environment, he implemented an organic and biodynamic approach from the outset and continues to champion the benefits of biodynamic winemaking globally.
