The winery overlooks the three hectares of landscape, embracing it and dominating it. This generous space will eventually allow for the storage of 40 thousands of wine bottles. The entrance represents minimalistic hiden concrete curves, a large area will be reserved for welcoming visitors, for wine tasting and assessment.
Nestled in the Moldova center, the Winery fuses the region’s longstanding wine tradition with a contemporary design in constant dialogue with the surrounding vines. Reflective of modern wine-making processes, the building brings together several distinct interconnected functions – a wine-making facility, the winery’s administrative base, visitor center, adjoining tasting room, restaurant for 200 seats and two terraces. Emulating archetypal wine cellars of the region, the vault of the winery rests on a grid of arched beams. Acting as a mirror of this shape, an undulant roof serves as an amphitheater for cultural events open to both locals and visitors, merging the winery into the ground – and the culture – on which it rests.
