Winetobe was proud to be appointed the Official Wine Partner of Archifest 2016, organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects. Tasked with creating an innovative wine theme that architecture-lovers could relate to, Winetobe hosted two wine workshops titled “Architecture in the History of Wine”.
The story of wine is one steeped in century-old tales, extraordinary characters, as well as both decadence and austerity. What most do not know is that wine, and the people who make them, have often been influenced by their surroundings and the nature of the world around them. During this session we discussed the role of Architecture in wine – understanding the history of selected Houses, their distinctive architectural styles, and how these structures were conceptualised and built while incorporating the traditions of the winemakers and family owners. Alongside the discussions was a guided tasting of four enchanting wines, specially selected for the architectural wonders of their origins.
