Founded in the XIII century by the Order of the Templars, the Commanderie de Peyrassol was a place of rest for the pilgrims who were directed to the Holy Land. Nevertheless, this territory which is characterized by a clay-calcareous land ideal for viticulture, is obviously famous for its viticultural tradition as well as for its history: the first vineyards were planted by the Templars almost 800 years ago.
Nowadays, the Commanderie de Peyrassol covers almost 100 hectares of land which are focused on the cultivation of vines. However, it covers a total of 950 hectares scattered with oaks and olives trees too.
The customer decided to have faith in Defranceschi-SACMI’s experience in order to build a cellar recalling the Medieval period. Indeed, the design tanks which you can find inside the cellar, symmetrically set and surrounded by stairs, stand out for their splendor. Thanks to the stairs, a hypothetical visitor can reach and discover every hidden spot and admire the cellar from every perspective both from the projectual and technological perspective.
The Templar Cross, which is also Peyrassol’s brand, occupies the main position in the cellar with its modern representation nestled on every tank. Therefore, the cross dominates the company identity and history.
Interesting is the solution of the stratified catwalk in porcelain ceramic which is impact and wear of time resistant. Is is also easy to use in every cellar working process, cleaning, aesthetically attractive and practical to use. Without overlooking the projectile and aesthetical choices, once more Defranceschi-SACMI succeeded in exploiting its technological competence.
Progetto sviluppato da Defranceschi e dal suo dipartimento interno di designer italiani.
