Wine + Architecture (4)

4- Bodegas Regalía, Ollauri.

It is often said that wineries are the new cathedrals. However, in front of the stern geometry of this building, one is rather reminded of an Egyptian temple -version 2.0.

Half-buried on top of a sandy hill just off Haro, this bodega was designed by architects Javier Arizcuren and Miguel Alonso, who were awarded with Technal prize for their exacting work. The building would be worth a visit even if empty.

But, let's not forget, this is a winery. A modern great winery. An avant-garde winery where technology is used to treat the grape with utmost care. If this is what the future will be like, let's drink to it!
