Château La Coste

Author: Anothertravelguide.com1 COMMENT

Château La Coste

Château La Coste is the symbiosis of three muses – wine, art, and architecture – featuring the purest essence of each. The picturesque 600-acre property lies at the foot of the Luberon massif 16 kilometres from Aix-en-Provence, the birthplace of Impressionist master painter Paul Cézanne. The first thing that surprises visitors to the estate is the gigantic Crouching Spider by French-American artist Louise Bourgeois, which literally seems to crawl across the surface of the water against the backdrop of the winery buildings designed by starchitect Jean Nouvel. Château La Coste is one of this region’s most modern wineries; in 2009 it was granted status as an organic winery, and it adheres to biodynamic principles and methods.

The property belongs to the Irish businessman, developer, and hotelier Paddy McKillen, who acquired it in 2002 as a space in which to develop his greatest passions in life. For over ten years now he has been regularly inviting his artist and architect friends to take inspiration here and create something especially for this place. Today the Château La Coste collection contains more than 32 works of art of all sizes and shapes, with new ones being added all the time. Here you’ll find artwork by Alexander Calder, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Liam Gillick as well as an art centre designed by Tadao Ando, which is one of his few projects in Europe. Frank Gehry, the ‘exploder of tin cans’, designed an open-air concert hall on the winery’s grounds, and a new exhibition hall designed by Renzo Piano has also just recently opened. Some of the displayed artwork revolves around the theme of wine, such as the gigantic bronze cup made by Irish artist Guggi, the title of which, Calix Meus Inebrians, is inspired by the well-known Biblical phrase ‘my cup runneth over’ (or, ‘my cup makes me drunk’).

Considering that the artists are given completely free rein, the Château La Coste collection is eclectic. But it is also integrated in the environment wondrously well, with each piece living a life of its own, so to say. Nothing here is too polished, and only a gravel path leads visitors through the meadows and hills. A full tour takes at least two hours, after which you can treat yourself to lunch at one of the two restaurants at Château La Coste. And, if you feel like staying even longer, this year the property also opened the 28-room Villa La Coste surrounded by terraces of flowers and herbs. Whatever you decide to do, definitely do not leave without tasting some La Coste sparkling rosé made of Grenache and Cinsault grapes according to the champagne method.
