Architecture in the History of Wine


By Winetobe.com

The story of wine is one steeped in century-old tales, extraordinary characters, as well as both decadence and austerity. What most do not know is that wine, and the people who make them, have often been influenced by their surroundings and the nature of the world around them.

During this workshop we will be discussing the role of Architecture in wine – understanding the history of selected Houses, their distinctive architectural styles, and how these structures were conceptualised and built while incorporating the traditions of the winemakers and family owners.
