La Rioja’s Structured Wine
A new crop of Spanish vintners is combining architectural and viticultural creativity in their wineries.
“The windswept hills of La Rioja, in northern Spain, have been home to grape cultivation for over 1,000 years. While historic bodegas abound, the 21st century has seen a new generation of vintners recruiting top designers to build their wineries. Now the architecture may be stealing the show with tour operators like Butterfield & Robinson, The Unique Traveller and Rioja Wine Trips basing whole itineraries around it. Here are four of the most spectacular examples of La Rioja’s new wave of design, delivered with appropriate pairings.”
