When surveying the site for the new winery, architect Ignacio Quemada was immediately struck by the natural beauty of the landscape. When he saw where the new winery would be located, his first thought was“What a beautiful place!. Where do I put 45,000 sq.m. without ruining it?” His answer: do it underground.
Quemada’s decision to build the new winery underground had several benefits. First of all, it would naturally achieve the ideal conditions for making and ageing wine. And secondly, it made it possible to integrate the new winery with the landscape, so fundamental for environment.
It is a perfect symmetry between industrial needs and architectural beauty, best described by the creator himself: “On the one hand, the architecture responds to all the winemaking needs, whilst on the other, it is the architecture that defines even the smallest details of the building”.
