About the Producer

Caves de Richemer lies between the Mediterranean Sea and the sea lagoon Lagune de Thau on the coast of the Southern Languedoc. The co-operative oversees one thousand hectares of vines in the Hérault region, which are managed sustainably. The name Richemer stems from 19th century tales of a modest winegrower, Henri Richet, who so quickly made his fortune in trading wines from the old port of Marseillan, that people gave him the nickname ‘Henri de Richemer’. The seahorse on the label is the emblem of Caves de Richemer and is native to the lagoon.

Vineyard and Winery

The vineyards are located outside of the Picpoul appellation, which is why the spelling of the 'Picpoul' grape is the alternative spelling 'Piquepoul'. The vineyards are managed sustainably and lie on clay-limestone soil on the coast alongside the sea lagoon, Étang de Thau. The combination of limestone soils and sea breezes help to temper the warm summer temperatures and maintain acidity in the grapes.

The grapes are picked, carefully sorted and gently pressed before undergoing fermentation. Temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks are used to maintain maximum freshness and the primary fruit flavours.
