Mas de Theyron
In the Languedoc region in the South of France, a prestigious vineyard with a reputation dating back to the 18th century becomes the setting for a dwelling from the same era.
Lafourcade Architecture, specialists in winery architecture, restored the cellar and reorganised the courtyard and outbuildings. The façade took on a new elegance with its fire pits and circular windows. Dominique Lafourcade designed a traditional garden in keeping with the proportions of the site, comprising cypresses, olive trees, vine-covered pergolas and boxwood beds, all of which are mirrored in an imposing lake.
The lanterns, decorated fermentation vats, ceiling and beams all conspire to create a nostalgic feel, recalling the cellars of another age while still remaining hardwearing and functional.
The Mas de Theyron is also a 15-hectare wine estate. The vineyard has been in organic cultivation since 2010, and it produces syrah, grenache, carignan, merlot and viognier grape varieties, yielding subtly blended and elegant wines.
