Top architects have created spectacular winery designs from Napa Valley to Italy. Raise a glass to the world’s best vineyards and start planning your next trip
In recent years, more and more of the best vineyards have sought to make a statement not just with their wines but with the design of their facilities, enlisting star architects from Renzo Piano to Zaha Hadid. That means wineries are no longer mere side trips en route to the main attraction—they’ve become destinations in their own right. World-class food and drink, stunning architecture, luxury lodgings, idyllic settings—this is the stuff epicurean dreams are made of. In advance of the grape harvest (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least), AD takes a look at some of the most beautifully designed wineries around the globe. In vino—and venustas—verities.
4/19 Kunjani Wines
Stellenbosch, South Africa
A recent addition to South Africa’s Stellenbosch wine region is Kunjani Wines. The winery’s design puts a modern twist on Cape Dutch architecture with its charcoal exterior and red sliding screens, which were inspired by the patterns painted on West African mud huts. The interiors, by Haldane Martin, are equally daring with a laser-cut staircase and wine display, graphic wallpaper, and bright red accents.
