Cantina Antinori Winery, Tuscany, Italy
Located in the unique Chianti landscape halfway between the scenic Florence and Sienna amongst the vast fields of vineyards, the ‘Cantina Antinori’ winery by italian practice Archea explores the relationship between man, a product, the site and the process of manufacture in their most essential forms. The winemaker has a very special, if not spiritual connection to the land on which his vineyards grow; there is a constant struggle to maintain quality as well as a large economical commitment to produce the best quality grape. as a result, the winery is set into the contours of the land as two horizontal cuts made from large planes of concrete, framing views and paying homage to the site and covered with a vineyard.
