  • A perfect combination of conviviality and elegance Ultimate Provence, UP, is a unique destination for those who seek an unexpected experience of Provence.

    The development of the estate was entrusted to Monaco-based interior architecture firm Humbert & Poyet, with the mission to create an intimate, urban setting that overturns the traditional design codes of a wine estate.

    The creative duo respected the requirements inherent to a working winery while combining functionality and aesthetics. The combination of raw and contemporary materials such as concrete, with elements more noble like aged oak, marble, brass and leather, gives a unique character to this new establishment

    The living spaces are inviting, an Aegean blue adorns the walls and harmonizes the brass of the hanging lights and sconces, creating a vivid contrast between the colours and materials, urban lines and warm atmospheric lighting.

    The flow of light and open perspectives play an important role in creating spatial volumes. Large glazed metal doors with brass handles separate the different areas, from the cellars to the tasting room, through to the restaurant, thus creating visual fluidity.

    In creating the estate’s interiors, Humbert & Poyet drew inspiration from the landscapes of the south of France: aged oak, velvet, texture and brass, notes of sage and sepia, reminiscent of the colours of Provence, its soil and green vineyards.

    Welcoming, refined and modern, the Ultimate Provence wine estate distinctly displays a design signed by Humbert & Poyet: a high-end setting perfect for living memorable moments in the heart of Provence.
