The origin of the project by Jean-Philippe RIA :
“I am a wine amateur and I used to have a wine cellar of a few hundred bottles, managed in a classic way… underground, in a remote place… I wanted to change that, to glorify those estates, those châteaux which bring so much pleasure and which were, until then, stored a bit everywhere, without a proper decor. So I rebuilt my cellar as an amateur who wanted to turn it into a living space. What started as a personal project has become, for a year and a half, a company that creates custom-made wine cellars all over France.”
