Antinori Winery by Archea Associati
Just for a moment forget the heading "Antinori Winery.....". At the first glance it looks like modern arts gallery and instead of wine barrels it shall display art installations, paintings and modern sculptures.
Who is to say that wine-making is not an art? That is exactly the point that Antinori - one of the Italy's oldest wineries is trying to make. Wine-making is an art and Antinori is ready for a modern facelift!
Designed by Archea Associati in one of the most scenic countrysides between Florence and Siena, winery (7 buildings in all) designed to blend with the landscape. It hugs terrain without a hint of "trespassing", incorporates natural materials and takes advantage of the most incredible scenic views.
In cellars - subtle lighting, shadows and wine barrels - just like 3 dimensional art installations create this interactive background for one of the oldest forms of art - metamorphosis of wine.
