The Chateau La Coste Domaine
Château La Coste is a vineyard where Wine, Art & Architecture live in harmony. Artists and architects were invited to visit the Domain and discover the beauty of Provence. In turn, they were encouraged to choose a place in the landscape that spoke directly to them and were given the freedom to create a work that would live there. Château La Coste will continue to evolve as new projects and installations are developed. Walk through the wooded hilltops and the valleys, alongside the olive groves and the vineyards, to discover over 30 works of art and architecture by the contemporary artists invited to participate.
The Art Center of Tadao Ando
Tadao Ando conceived the Art Centre for Château La Coste. The building adopts many of the Japanese masterʼs signature elements to create an extraordinary experience of light and space in nature. A vast infinity pool of water hides an underground car park and provides a spectacular stage for an upper level that is laid out in a V-shaped plan. Flanked by entire elevations of glass, one wing of this ʻVʼ houses our welcome desk and bookshop, while the other wing includes a restaurant which overlooks the water and vines.
Château La Coste also has the pleasure of organizing all year-round cultural events such as temporary exhibitions of international artists, musical concerts and outdoor projections of movies.
Wines of Château La Coste
Adhering to biodynamic principles, Château La Coste strives to preserve the terroir, protecting its fertility, safeguarding the essence of the soil. The alchemy of blending lives on in a state of the art ʻcuverieʼ designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and inaugurated with the grape harvest of 2008. This latest technology ensures the natural expression of the wine and brings new life to a long tradition. In 2009 our wines were given the French organic label “AB” in recognition of the respect shown to the land along with the methods used which are in perfect harmony with nature. Their team will be very happy to offer you a private tour to discover the latest technology in winemaking.
