The winery is located at an altitude of 1,200 meters, right in the center of the vineyards. More than 49 hectares of native desert habitat were conserved, and are part of the daily landscape of the winery. The western horizon is dominated by the nearby snow-capped Andes, which rise to more than 6,100 meters.
The magnificent wine cellar was designed with two aspects in mind: form and function. The cross shape facilitates careful handling of grapes and wine, while reducing the path that both fruits and their product travel through the different stages of production. Each wing constitutes in itself a small warehouse with two levels.
In the first, stainless steel tanks and French oak vats enable fermentation and storage. In the underground level, meanwhile, the wine is aged in oak barrels. Both floors allow the liquid to circulate from the tanks to the barrels through a traditional gravity transfer system.
The four wings converge in a circular central chamber, similar to an amphitheater, built with the classical temples of antiquity as inspiration.
