The Maury Vineyard is a quadrilateral shape, three kilometres wide by eleven Kilometres long. It starts in the plain of Estagel and ends in the west at the gates of Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet. The vines are planted on small slopes in a basin area bordered to the north and south by spectacular limestone cliffs. To the north looms the Cathar Castle of Queribus.
The Maury vin doux naturel comes from a fairly homogeneous terroir. It is produced mainly from Grenache Noir grown almost exclusively on black schist, hence the name Maury from Amarioles or Amarilolas meaning ‘black earth’
