Wine by Design
There is a revolution currently underway in the world of wine. Established and new vintners are discovering the dual marketing advantage of coupling exquisite, name–brand designer architecture with the winery tour. Internationally renowned architects, such as Frank Gehry, Herzog & de Meuron, and Santiago Calatrava, have all designed wineries that focus on the experience of wine production for the visitor while providing brand recognition in the form of architecture.
Celebrating the new alignment that the wine industry is making with design,
Wine by Design
will highlight the most exciting new designs for wineries and spaces of wine from throughout the world including Australia, Chile, USA, Canada and the established vineyards of Europe.
It will also emphasise the way design is making headway into wine retail and wine bars, consolidating wines association with contemporary architecture and design.
