Bélair-Monange Winery in Saint-Émilion

Herzog & de Meuron 

Combining spaces for production and promotional activities, the viticulture facilities of a historic estate seek to formally and conceptually blend into a World Heritage Site.

Much like the product embodies the vineyards’ mineral and climatic characteristics, the winery integrates with the terroir, drawing from Romanesque architecture as well as embracing a winemaking legacy going back to Gaul.

The low-rise volume containing the winery’s new spaces is situated next to the original house built in 1845. A concrete roof unifies the ensemble and provides a cover for the panoramic reception hall and roof terrace.

Traversed by a sculptural staircase, a central gallery organizes the production and the tasting areas, showcasing a concrete and timber cladding adorned with a Dürer drawing, mirroring the artwork of the Grand Cru labels.
