Several wineries and vineyards have captured the public’s eye in recent years thanks to their distinctive architecture, which thoroughly conveys the atmosphere of their surroundings while reflecting the tradition of the winemaker. Through selected vineyards, this book traces the path of winemaking from grape harvest to tasting – all through the eyes of architects and winemakers: Based on numerous conversations with them, the authors are able to tell the personal stories behind the origins of each building and how it relates to its special place, all while expressing the sensual experience that is part of the world of wine. Besides information about the various wine-growing regions and the history of “wine architecture”, the book familiarises the reader with the winemaking process and wine itself, making the book a handy wine and travel guide from the architect’s perspective.
