Since when is wood used in wineries? Why is this material chosen?
The link between wineries and fine wood is intense and leads us to the very essence of the work carried out in wineries: making and ageing wine. From the contact of the first juice with the wood of the presses to the ageing of the wine in oak barrels, wood has always been present in the birth of the great wines of the world. And so it makes a lot of sense that, when an architect approaches the design of one of these wine cathedrals, to a greater or lesser extent, wood panelling should be chose as one of the options for beautifying façades, offices or visiting rooms, museums or wine bars and even the barrel halls.
Wood panelling has always been used in wineries, and this continues to be the case. There are many examples but here we have highlighted six that show the different possible uses of the wood panelling in wineries.
1.- In Bodegas Portia, the work of Norman Foster for the Faustino Group in the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin in Spain, oak wood was used throughout the interior on walls and ceilings and for doors, furniture and bottle racks. For further information, see post “Bodegas Portia technical carpentry”
2.- Bodegas Pago de Carraovejas, the work of Amas4arquitectura studio in Peñafiel (Spain), is another example of the use of oak wood panelling, in this case in the false ceilings and the floors of the non-industrial part of the building. Photographs and further information on Amas4arquitectura
3.- In Bodegas Viña Tondonia, in La Rioja (Spain), wood was also the choice for the new winebar. It was used for doors, furniture, cladding and ceilings, in this case Spigotec brand accessible ceilings. For further information, see post “The day we worked with Zaha Hadid: the Viña Tondonia wineshop”
5.- Spigotec and Spigoacustic wood ceilings and ceilings in Bodegas Darien, in La Rioja (Spain), the work of JMP Arquitectos.
