Located in the Provence region of the south of France, the Château La Coste winery is constructed with modern architecture and contemporary sculptures around the premises.

Since 2008, the two vast contemporary buildings conceived by French architect Jean Nouvel have welcomed the grape harvest and housed the machinery and technical elements necessary for the ageing process of the wine as well as the bottling plant. Their spherical form and position in the vineyard recall the greenhouses and agricultural warehouses of old that can still be seen in farms across the southern regions of France.

Each building is 10 meters high and is made of corrugated aluminium. One, smaller in volume and open on one side, shelters the reception of the fruit, the manuel sorting and three large grape pressers. The larger building, whose front facade is veiled by a series of sun-visors, opens its door to reveal the bottling plant and the stock of bottled wine. Seventeen meters below ground is found the vast, state of the art chamber containing the vats.

The central role of gravity along with other technological innovations enable a production of wine that is loyal to the specifics of the La Coste terroir.

This exceptional work plays a major role in the architectural project of Château La Coste.
