Vineyard and wine-producing architecture,
Contemporary wine cellars
The vineyards of Bordeaux are taking the example set by their foreign counterparts and are opening up to contemporary architecture. From Jean Nouvel to Mario Botta, Jean Michel Wilmotte, the most famous architects are now being asked to transform the châteaux of Bordeaux into real works of art. The trend that has been in view over the last few years is now a reality: from Cos d'Estournel to Cheval Blanc, famous architects are now working to modernise wine cellars and enhance these XVIIth & XIXth century chateaux.
