Conveniently situated between the historic city of Aix en Provence and the Luberon National Park, Château La Coste occupies a privileged location in the heart of Provence. It seamlessly harmonizes Wine, Art, and Architecture, as exemplified by the iconic winery created by Jean Nouvel. This state-of-the-art vat room, inaugurated during the grape harvest in 2008, represents a blend of innovation and aesthetics. Its avant-garde design featuring steel sheets contributes to the preservation of the wines’ natural flavors and aromas.

The winery comprises two distinct buildings dedicated to the storage, maturation, and bottling of the harvested grapes. The first building houses hand-sorting machinery and pressing equipment, while the adjacent structure accommodates bottling facilities and expansive storage areas. Hidden beneath the earth’s surface, a remarkable underground cellar awaits, accessible through steel footbridges. It is in this subterranean sanctuary that Domaine Château La Coste’s wines mature, gradually developing their unique character.
