TerraViva’s Cultural Winery Architecture Competition focuses on the scenic landscape of Tuscany which unfolds with the unique charm of its vernacular farmhouses, typically referred to as “Poderi”. These picturesque structures served for ages as the heart of small family-operated farms, often surrounded by vineyards and fertile agricultural expanses.
Among them, a particular Agriturismo has been part of an ambitious renovation project for the last 40 years: Podere Fedespina. Built over the centuries and characterized by an ancient manor house made of local sandstone, the first elements of this rural complex date back to the 15th century.
Cultural Winery is about imagining a new concept of tasting, a space in which art, culture and tradition come together in a single project. The goal of this competition is to complement the existing facilities with a new building capable of offering a contemporary experience in a space steeped in history. A one-of-a-kind winery where leisure, events and nature coexist in harmony.
