PONT DES ARTS
UNIQUE ART & WINE COLLECTIONS
Co-founded and co-owned by
Arthur de Villepin and Thibault Pontallier
PONT DES ARTS is an exclusive, limited collection of fine wines and spirits, a bridge between Art and Wine, the East and West, and collectors and newcomers alike. Pont des Arts marries the best from the Art world (such as Zao Wou-Ki, Yue Minjun and Miquel Barceló) and the Wine world (Paul Pontallier and other highly respected wine experts from France).
When founders, Arthur de Villepin and Thibault Pontallier, met in Hong Kong in 2010, they shared a common goal: to promote abroad what France does best. Arthur was passionate about art and loved wine, Thibault was passionate about wine and loved art. The project combines their French roots and lifestyle with different cultures and talents.
Pont des Arts has been creating exclusive art and wine collections since 2010 and is now available in more than 20 countries.
Every bottle produced adorns carefully selected pieces of art, chosen together with the artist, to match the flavor profile of each wine. The two founders went to Zao Wou-Ki’s and Miquel Barceló’s atelier in Paris and Yue Minjun’s in Beijing several times, ensuring the emotions that are evoked when drinking great wine or looking at great art are intrinsically linked through Pont des Arts
Thibault Pontallier and his father – the legendary French winemaker Paul Pontallier – spent many years alongside other wine experts from Bordeaux and Burgundy tasting, blending and creating this limited collection of fine wines. They looked for the best terroirs and the best grapes in France, tasting more than 700 different parcels, to realise this unique project. As Arthur de Villepin points out ‘‘the wines themselves are works of Art’’.
“Pont des Arts is a beautiful story and a bridge, not only between Art & Wine, but also between some of the best regions of wine in the world. Together with my son Thibault, and a few winemakers/friends, we have explored many different terroirs in order to create this limited collection of fine wines.Our goal is to express the personality of their origin together with our vision of what fine wines should deliver: balance, freshness, enough density but not at the expense of subtlety, and above all, pleasure of drinking!”

Arthur de Villepin
The Art de Vivre Group pledges to make a real difference in people’s everyday life by propagating the concept of the art of living with a certain French flair.
In the increasingly globalised world in which we live, the concept of quality of life often becomes confused in the face of our hectic, even if involuntary, lifestyle. Countering the misguided belief that money equals quality, the Art de Vivre Group endeavours to introduce European savoir faire to contemporary Asia, to share with people a new concept of living and the capacity to enjoy life.
Arthur de Villepin is the Founder and CEO of the Art de Vivre Group. Son of former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, Arthur de Villepin was born in the United States and spent his childhood in India, as his father was posted to the French embassies in the said countries. His mother is the celebrated sculptor Marie-Laure de Villepin, who instilled in Arthur de Villepin a genuine love for art.
Repatriating to France at the age of ten, Arthur de Villepin completed secondary education in his native country and graduated with a degree in International Relations in the United Kingdom. Arthur de Villepin had the unusual experience of perceiving France before actually living there, which would help shape his views on French culture and life in general. A staunch believer in the art of life and one with his own insights, Arthur de Villepin sets out on his journey to advocate and propagate art in everyday life.
With offices in Paris, Bordeaux, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, the Art de Vivre group comprises 50+ employees, a commercial, a consulting and an investment branch.
Art de Vivre Investments empowers and partners with industry leading companies that are poised for global growth and disrupting social stigma. It pledges to deliver superior returns for clients over the long run.
The Art de Vivre Group is the vehicle with which Founder and CEO Arthur de Villepin introduces art into everyday life. It is his genuinely held belief that the best elements of French culture and tradition can transcend borders and adapt to new horizons, for the pursuit of art and pleasure is one important factor which unites mankind.
Its Commercial Branch covers contemporary art brands, wine and lifestyle.
– Art de Vivre Collection
– Pont des Arts
Working in unison with one another, our commercial branch has a comprehensive and diverse portfolio of offerings, united by a common passion of life and artistic adventure. The Art de Vivre Group is a unique journey through art with the aim to cultivate, enjoy and celebrate.
We cordially invite you to embark with us on this artistic journey.
The Art de Vivre Group is committed to making the concept of art of living accessible to everyone. Whether it is via the Group’s wine collection, restaurant or juicery, art, design or production company, the Art de Vivre Group endeavours to trigger emotions through experiences in various aspects of life.
For all the benefits globalisation brings to our everyday life such as the fusion of cultures and abundance of offers, it can in various ways result in the loss of quality. Faced with multi faceted offers and options, an authoritative reference point, one based on originality, is often missing. Identity is not to be copied, but embodied in the way we live our daily life, the way we think, and what we consume.
Finding itself at this turning point, the Art de Vivre Group is actively involved in this movement of consciousness. As the pioneer of this social change, the Art de Vivre Group pledges to try to make the world a better place and restore us to our true selves through its brands, spanning various aspects of life.
It is long-lasting memories, not material items, that the Art de Vivre Group seeks to create. Without falling into the trap of consumerist lifestyle, the Art de Vivre Group focuses on pure quality to bring back to modern life the value of good old times.
Drawing experts and talents from different cultural backgrounds, the Art de Vivre Group aims nothing less than to redefine the concept of luxury in Asia, one which is not determined by price tags, but genuine quality, indelible memories and heartfelt emotions. The art of living, as the Art de Vivre Group firmly believes, is about enjoying life, living it to the full and taking it to the next level, at which apparently routine elements turn exceptional.
We are pleased, therefore, to share with you each and every moment that creates experience and emotions, by bringing about the finest elements in life.
