Text description provided by the architects. The winery arises as a free standing building with an accentuated singular character.

Dueto its industrial use as much as to its location in an emblematic environment. It raises a respectful solution towards the landscape of low environmental impact which is suitable for the scale as much as for the dominating colours of the landscape.

The winery is located on the top of a smooth hill that dominates the landscape and the wineyard which south. Half buried, this front back condition polarizes the project and differentiates in a clear way the north face from the south, allowing the spaces that need it to open themselves towards the south views in the most simbolic façade, while the industry facilities are protected located in the north part of the building. In this way the project, being an industrial building, achieves to blend harmoniously with the surrounding elements only the winery.

The project comes up as a rectangular compact piece of 85.5 M. X 23.10 M. In which all the necessary elements are included, properly displayed for an optimum industrial development of the winery.

The base is organized in two levels, a low concrete level of a massive character and the upper level lighter and metallic of a clearly tectonic character.

The pleated metallic skin made of reflective aluminum, covers the base and provides the façades with a mimetic character. The folded sheet interacts with the landscape, allowing a double game of harmony and dialogue with the surroundings.
