Faustino Winery II by Foster + Partners

It seems like the wine architecture is the new IT. The winery building can be central to the quality of the wine produced as well as the winemaker’s marketing image.

The Faustino Group, a family-run company in its fourth generation, decided to take the step and ask Foster + Partners to design the new Faustino Winery II.

The new winery will be located 150 km north of Madrid in the Ribera del Duero, one of Spain’s foremost wine-producing regions. The building’s trefoil design is the logical result of a rationalisation of the wine making process into its three core functions. Form follows function.

The visitors will be able to access the public areas, on glazed mezzanine levels extending to each wing, and to the wine tasting in the café and restaurant.
