Male’, Maldives, 17th September 2023 – Mark your calendars for the 6th to 8th of November when Nova, the shining new star among resorts in the Maldives, will play host to the vintner extraordinaire, Nicolas Maillart, for an exclusive three-day event, an immersive exploration into the world of wine and oenology. The Maillart family’s legacy, which traces its roots back to 1753, boasts a rich history of vine cultivation and the art of crafting exceptional sparkling wines. Their business philosophy is deeply rooted in viticulture and meticulous winemaking techniques. Today, guided by the ninth generation, the Maillart legacy continues to thrive and stand strong in the industry.

Champagne Nicolas Maillart, the namesake champagne house, goes beyond winemaking and showcases a steadfast commitment to environmental sustainability. In 2009, they boldly embraced sustainability by installing 130 square meters of photovoltaic panels, which generate 90% of their power needs, significantly reducing their carbon footprint. This dedication allows patrons to savor their exquisite wines without compromising the environment.
