The name Richemer refers to a legend from the 19th century when Henri Richet, a wine-maker from Marseillan, made a fortune in selling wine thanks to the sea-faring trade. He was quickly given the name of Henri de Richemer. In the heart of the Languedoc, bordering the Thau Basin and the Mediterranean Sea, The Richemer began with the fusion of the Agde and Marseillan (Hérault) cooperative wine cellars.
Bringing together 350 wine-makers for a total of 1500 ha of vineyards, they continue being considered the most important in the Thau Basin, known for its white wines which pair perfectly with oysters also its rosé wines, so ideal for sipping outside on a terrace. The excellent and locally-representative grape varieties of Merlot, Marselan and Piquepoul are their specialities.
