Valdemonjas Winery, Spain
Valdemonjas Winery by Agag+Paredes projects from a hillside in Spain
A+Awards: this wine production and tasting facility emerges from the vine-planted landscape of northern Spain, and was a recipient of a 2016 Architizer A+Award.
The family-run Valdemonjas Winery needed a new space to make their product and attract visitors, so architects Ana Agag and Silvia Paredes teamed up to design a landmark that would be visible from afar.
The vineyard is located in Spain's Ribera del Duero region, near to wineries designed by Foster + Partners and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.
"We were captivated at first sight with the landscape, its topography and the quality of the vineyards," said the architects. "Integration into the existing landscape was one of our main goals."
