A new vision from
Alibaba founder Jack Ma
Throughout its history as a resting spot for pilgrims, a family home and a profitable vineyard, Château de Sours has always been closely tied to the land. In 2016, the estate, vineyard and surrounding land located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of France were revived by Alibaba founder Jack Ma with a new vision.
Inspired by ecosystem and equilibrium, we highlighted the harmony of all the moving parts.
Mirroring the offline experience online
The site was crafted with care to ensure a consistent desktop and mobile experience. Through photographs, large hero headlines and educational text, the website makes digesting crucial brand information easier to understand.
We utilized parallax scrolling to create the feeling of depth within the site, building interest and engagement.
A writing style with an equally vivid, concise natural tone devoid of pretension
