World's Coolest Winery Features

8 architecturally distinct wineries to visit

World's Coolest Winery Features We’ve been taking a look at the design of wineries around the world over these past few weeks from a rather holistic point of view. The truth is that almost every winery is designed with some aesthetic, some just resonate more with me and some are just simply a better expression of that aesthetic.

So what of the rest? Well, today I just want to look at the cool bits and pieces. Some of these are fairly iconic elements of their wineries, some are famous, but all of them make you want to visit!

So without further ado, here’s what makes a winery cool. Put them all together and I think you end up with Las Vegas!

    Interesting article was surprised that the Frank Gehry designed hotel at Marques de Riscal was not included. http://www.arcspace.com/architects/... Like it or hate it's pretty cool.

    Actually,brightcomb, Marques de Riscal IS a winery. It happens to be one of the oldest in the Rioja region of Spain. Check out the link provided by curiousky. A point can be made for its inclusion on the list.

  • Interesting choices, although I personally feel that Darouish reminds me of "Disney meets Fry's Electronics". All this foofery while charging you $65 for a bottle of average wine. At least you can't say it's boring.

    Of a list for "top... of the world" it was a little CA heavy, but that said, some owned by foreigners haha.

    Castello di Amorosa is deserving of consideration as well.

  • Pretty sure Greg included Dominus in a previous edition...best winery building in California for sure. And yes, the Clos Pegase building is a postmodern atrocity.
