The cellar, recipient of many prizes, plays a very important role in Contra’ Soarda. The intervention, started in 1999, concerned the agricultural arrangement, the planting of the vineyard and the construction of the winery. The cellar, build completely inside the mountain, tries to combine the bio-architecture principles together with the technological production aspects. The goal was to create a zero-impact building, well integrated with the surrounding landscape and in harmony with the environment. Furthermore, the design of the winery was studied to facilitate and improve the whole production processes: from the transportation of the grapes with gravity to the geothermic temperature control. The barricaia, the place devoted to the wine aging, was inspired by the works of some the masters of modern architecture: Anonì Gaudi and Eladio Dieste. The vault systems of double curve, the sinuous shapes and the use of local materials, make Contrà Soarda’s barricaia a unique place, able to carry the human being into a comfortable isolation from the outside world while encouraging him to find a deep connection with the wine.
