This young winery, in the Rioja Alavesa region, has an innovative approach not only to the architecture, but also, and here the architecture is very integrated with, the process of wine making. The result of a prolongated study period working hand in hand with the developer is the consecution of a project where all the elaborating systems have been questioned and where gravity appears as the principal allied avoiding the use of pumps, funnels, machinery in general, etc. which could damage the grapes. The winery is insinuated and adapted to the existing topography and develops all its programme underground, adopting a submissive position with the environment where it is settled. The entrance is situated above ground, a space totally surrounded by glass, from where the surrounding landscape can be enjoyed. What happens beneath is only to be imagined... There are 6 floors going down into the ground, carved out of the mountain, where the whole wine making process ends ... in a restaurant.

Some of the most wonderful wine ever!!! Is it available anywhere in the USA? Is I know a retail merchant, how could he purchase some?

An astounding building that has a wonderful group of people working there. The restaurant is absolutely the best and the wait staff and chef are so talented in their pairings of food and wine. Do not miss this on your next trip. Make sure to plan a lunch here - and spend a lot of time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
