From the architect. Amidst the olive trees and vineyards of Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico, Tercio Winery is located adjacent to the previously completed project: Casa en el Valle de Guadalupe. Perpendicular to each other, the buildings form a dialogue by opening to a common plaza. Acting as another layer of the landscape, the winery responds to the rising volumes of the surrounding mountains.

Inspired by the owner's wine recipe (1/3 Cabernet, 1/3 Barbera, 1/3 Petit Syrah), the linear design of this "wine lab" is comprised of three main spaces that open completely to the outside and bring natural ventilation into the building. The materiality of the structure ref lects the rough yet sophisticated process of wine production. The corten steel exterior and the white acrylic interior skin contrast the raw natural environment with the refined end product.
