Bodegas BAIGORRI es un edificio emblemático y referente mundial en orientar su arquitectura al servicio del proceso de elaboración del vino por gravedad. El proyecto de Bodegas BAIGORRI se acomete con criterios encaminados a conseguir la calidad de sus vinos, volviendo a sistemas tradicionales, recuperando LA GRAVEDAD como principal aliado.

La bodega fue diseñada y construida por el arquitecto Iñaki Aspiazu, e inaugurada en 2002. Creación dirigida al peculiar modo de elaboración de nuestros vinos y referente de la arquitectura moderna que se integra en el paisaje respetando el medio donde se enclava.

Un proyecto donde la gravedad y la tecnología se han unido para trabajar en armonía y desarrollado para obtener, con la transformación de la uva, unos grandes vinos de La Rioja Alavesa, “vinos con carácter y personalidad.”

The materials used in the construction work are basically three: exposed concrete, glass and steel. The formal forcefulness has been achieved thanks to the large concrete surfaces forming a room where both steel and wood tanks may be found, which are used in an orderly manner for maceration.

An army of columns along the great warehouse join the floor and ceiling and they give the enclosure, saturated by pleasant aromas from the barrels of the aging cellar, an atmosphere of solemnity and seclusion.

Iñaki Aspiazu, the architect of Bodegas BAIGORRI, left a great professional mark with the creation of this world oenological benchmark, one of his most emblematic projects within the Basque Country, in which nature, technology and architecture come together to work in harmony in a building oriented to the service of the winemaking process by gravity.

On the occasion of his death in April 2014, Bodegas BAIGORRI wanted to honor his memory by organizing, from 2015 to 2017, the Iñaki Aspiazu Photography Contest “ARCHITECTURE AND WINE”, with the collaboration of the Basque-Navarre Official College of Architects, to reward people who wanted to express their vision of Architecture related to the world of wine.

The winning photographs of the three editions are shown below.
