Architecture and Landscapes


The VDP wine estate Kühling-Gillot in Bodenheim near Mainz receives the award for Architecture and Landscapes. In the midst of the estate's historic ensemble with its art nouveau mansion and the park-like garden, the prominent pavilion accommodating the wine store is situated. Two narrow paned apertures allow the view onto the red wine barrique barrels stored directly behind. The premises dedicated to tastings, housing a bar and a lounge, offer a panorama view onto the tree-lined garden. The unrivaled wine location is elegant and distinct in form and substance. Wine, architecture and design only blend well with one another when they are perfect - such is the creed of the self-proclaimed Bodenheim-based "Steinwein-Produzenten" ("Rock Wine Producers"– referring to terroir-based wines that bring out the character of the rock and soils they grow on).
