The vineyard is located at an altitude of 250-300 meters above sea level, its soil is predominantly marl. Harvesting begins only when the berries reach their optimum ripeness.

Aimery Sieur d'Arques is one of the largest wine producers in the Languedoc region. Of particular importance here is the terroir and the exhibition of vineyards. The Mediterranean climate plays a special favorable role. Despite the fact that the vineyards are located in the very south of France, the climate is softened by cooler winds blowing from the Atlantic and Pyrenees. The winery was founded in 1946 and today combines the most advanced technologies in the field of winemaking, at the same time not forgetting the age-old traditions. As a result, amazing quality wines are created. The history of the winery dates back to 1531, when the monks of the Benedictine Order created the first sparkling wine in the world a century before Pierre Perignon invented the champagne method. The wine is called La Blanchet de Limu. The first mention of this wine dates back to the end of the 16th century, when Señor D'Arc, the owner of land in Lima, drank the sparkling wine La Blanchette. In memory of this historic moment, the wine makers of the province of Languedoc decided to name their winery Amery Syr D'Arc.
