Wine + Architecture (3)

3 -Bodegas Baigorri, Samaniego

When you are driving along the breathtaking road A-124 and enjoying the gorgeous views over Ebro valley, a protruding big glass cube will catch your eye. This is Bodegas Baigorri, by architect Iñaki Aspiazu. The building won the Best of Wine Tourism Award in 2006.
The process of wine-making here is different to anything you may know: winery owners have questioned most of the current elaborating systems and machinery, and bet on the use of simple gravity instead of pumps and funnels, so as not to damage the grape. Sounds simple and sensible, doesn't it?
Try their top "vino de garaje" (Tempranillo grape from their oldest vines) and judge for yourself if vino Baigorri is up to the challenge.
