The cooperative winery of Marseillan (34) also called Caves Richemer, bringing together the cellars of Marseillan and Agde, is historically located in the city center. It generates by its activity nuisances to local residents and has therefore decided to build for the 2020 harvest a new cellar on the outskirts of the agglomeration.

The Ecochai 4E of the Caves Richemer will include:
This new winery will allow the Richemer Cellars the development of direct sales to the cellar by integrating an oeno-tourist activity and the visit of the production site organized by the tour operators.
To make this ambitious project financially feasible, the leaders had to, beforehand, develop in the best financial conditions the current site adjacent to the pond of Thau and the port of the city of Marseillan. They also had to find and acquire a building plot to accommodate the new cellar. To do this, they called on theland engineering department of the company INGEVIN.
