Window and Barrels at Senorio de Otazu

By In Photographs
It is rather a cliché in saying that many wineries are temples or cathedrals of wine. Many a pound has been expended on lavish buildings over the centuries, from the grand Bordeaux châteaux’s through to today’s architecturally interesting wineries – all curves or environmentally sound grand statements.

More pictures to come from the recently visited Senorio de Otazu winery in Navarra, Spain. The barrel cellar is an impressive sweep of a hall holding something like 1000 barrels. In one corner this little window, so reminiscent of an English church window.

Window and Barrels at Senorio de Otazu, Navarra is this weeks Sunday Wine Shot.

    Dear Andrew,
    Really nice photo!
    Just a little misunderstanding, the barrel cellar has around 1500 french oak. Hope you enjoyed your visit to our winery.

    Oh I love this shot – the colours, the composition, everything. And yes – very church-like!
