Foster & Partners’ first winery opened in Spain this week

Bodegas Portia is a 12,500sq m facility, able to produce a million bottles a year. The building, in the Ribera del Duero, north of Madrid, sports a concrete structure clad in shingles of Corten steel.

The trefoil design arranges the three stages of production – fermentation in steel vats, ageing in oak barrels, and ageing in bottles – around an operations hub with a public gallery. The ageing stages are partly buried to produce favourable environmental conditions.
