  Bounded by the road and the wooded riverbank, the designed building is located in a vineyard, in Quintanilla de Arriba (Valladolid), in the exceptional wine environment named “The Golden Mile” of Ribera de Duero.  
  Customer's desire was an architectural icon for corporate and simbolic image, to stands out over the major wineries settled already in the surrounding environment, while respecting the intrinsic values ​​of the natural landscape as well.  
  The building is designed as a laid-up conceptual object in the landscape, developed as a "land art" performance, integrated and autonomous, embraced by the tree-lined banks of the river, a dense pine forest and surrounded by vineyards. Harvest fields extend in the distance up to the mountains, a complete contemporary real landscape, as a canvas to be looked from the road.  
  A piece made of stone emerges from the ground keeping-up the vineyard on its deck. A geometrical volume floating over the vineyard…, stranded boat, a white island. A large battlement wall brake through by the wind,.... a great hole, an arch as a framework for a magnificent landscape.  
  Images to define the will of addressing nature/architecture conflict from a respectful view, without relinquishing the autonomy and meaning as an object.  
  The complex program, integrates by a winery and a small hotel, is solved out with a rigid architectural piece, combining monumental and residential scales to explain this duality of seemingly incompatible uses; this functional ambiguity enriches the interior spaces too.  
  Functionally, the scheme is solved in two volumes conected by a bridge; wine manufacture and aging are articulated by a large open entrance hall where real vintage works share space with building accesses: residential (visible) and industrial (hidden).
