Architecture & Landscape


Verona | Italy

The new “Leonildo Pieropan” wine cellar is perfectly nestled in Soave hills, so much so that it became its part and parcel. Visitors can have a tour of the innovative and futuristic building, guided by a specialized staff, so as to discover the history of Pieropan family, winemakers for four generations.

The project, unique for innovation and integration with the territory, persuades the family. The wide structure is perfectly integrated into the environment and completely hidden under the hill with the exception of the front.

The sinuous facade is made of Vicenza stone, a material that lives through the seasons and changes over time. While the various workspaces inside are set up in harmony with the phases of winemaking and they are characterized by elements that create engaging suggestions and emotions. The external space is surrounded by vineyards, including experimental ones.
