Opened in March 2016 in Maldonado, Uruguay, Bodega Garzón Winery sets benchmarks for elegance, modern technology, and sustainable practices; they use Banker Wire mesh for wine lockers, space dividers, and door in-fill material. The property encompasses 500 acres of vineyards, a state-of-the-art winery, and production facility, tasting room from which guests can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, retail space, wine club, an open-fire restaurant, and caves for barrel storage, tours, private dining, and events.
The 205,000-square-foot winery is the first sustainable, LEED-certified winery outside North America, following the strict requirements set by the United States Green Building Council, for the entire facility. Showcasing estate-grown, limited-production premium wines crafted by influential winemaker and viticulturist Alberto Antonini, Bodega Garzón offers visitors an experience that highlights the very best in South American hospitality.

Banker Wire’s L-62 wire mesh in woven bronze utilizes the contemporary look of high-definition Lock Crimp with traditional square mesh design — a highly scalable pattern that readily interfaces with all types of structures, economical, and classic. The L-62 was selected as a cohesive design element for the exclusive wine club area of the property with bronze wire mesh integrated into the doors, transoms, partitions, and wine lockers. Installations throughout the wine club interior varied; some applications of the wire mesh kept the material raw and exposed, while others sandwiched the wire mesh between glass partitions for a more polished look.

Bronze Wire Mesh
Banker Wire bronze is a metal alloy containing a blend primarily of Copper with Tin as an additive. The unmistakable bright caramel color will darken naturally over time or it can be chemically darkened by a metal finisher to speed up the process.
