The popular image of the winery remains the picturesque European chateau, but a growing number of winemakers around the world are seeking a fresh approach. Architects are being challenged to rethink the winery as a bold contemporary expression of tradition and innovation, agriculture and technology, production and hospitality: powerful architecture with a serious purpose. This refreshing book by well-known architectural writer Michael Webb contains a selection of wineries designed by architects such as Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Renzo Piano, Steven Holl, Herzog & de Meuron, Santiago Calatrava, Rafael Moneo, Glenn Murcutt, Norman Foster, and more. Each project has been carefully chosen for its architectural excellence and offers a new perspective on an age-old craft and an adventurous approach to building. The locations are evocative: California, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Austria, Spain, Chile, and Argentina. The featured projects provide an introduction to the neophyte and are a delight for the connoisseur. Award-winning architectural photographer Erhard Pfeiffer's spectacular photography leads the reader to some of the most idyllic places on earth.
