Bodegas Protos opens its new store designed by Richard Rogers and Graham Stirk
The architect Graham Stirk has opened the new store of Bodegas Protos in Peñafiel, a new commitment to innovation in the building designed by Richard Rogers Stirk and himself at the foot of the castle of Penafiel.
The new store, located at the entrance to the winery, is much wider than before. Their goal is to be comfortable and functional at the same time. It also has more space to accommodate all the different wines available at the winery. In his speech, Stirk stressed that although the store is a small project, it reflects the love they have for this building. Furthermore, he added that "this is a cathedral of wine and should be treated as such. The concept is to create a smart, flexible furniture, and assume that this is the altar of the cathedral".
The architect has done a tour through the winery explaining to the audience the importance of architecture for the company. Edmundo Bayon, President of Bodegas Protos, has welcomed the presence of the audience and explained that "the new winery, which began as a project for the future, has such an important role, to understand the idiosyncrasies of Protos would be virtually impossible without it nowadays". He also highlighted that the previous store, "we installed under the ignorance of whether it would be sufficient to meet our customers".
For this occasion, and acknowledging the presence of Graham Stirk, Bodegas Protos has presented two of its wines that have just hit the market: Gran Reserva 2005 and Verdejo Barrel Fermented 2010.
