Le château La Coste (Le Puy-Sainte-Réparade)
Easy to recognize with the enormous silver spider guarding its entrance, Château La Coste is one of the wine-growing venues which is an absolute must in Provence. With its legs planted in the water of the pool, Louise Bourgeois’ spider is one of the 38 contemporary works of art on the estate. You can see the works of many artists spread around the vines, the garden, the contemporary art centre and the many buildings on the estate: Oscar Niemeyer, Renzo Piano, Richard Roger, Jean Nouvel and even Frank O.Gerhy provide an exceptional setting. In addition to its many works of art, Château La Coste also has a wine-growing estate which produces certified Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence and IGP des Portes de Méditerranée organic wines, which makes it a choice location for those who love to discover wines. And last but not least, Château La Coste also offers visits of its winery, designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel. And for the most enthusiastic, there are also wine-tasting workshops!
