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.
