Esterhazy-Etyeki-Kúria-Winery-by-BORD-Architectural-Studio02Esterházy Etyeki Kuria Winery is one of the leading wineries in the famous Hungarian wine region of Etyek. The site is situated on the picturesque slope of Öreghegy, which is characterized by little, pretty pressing houses between the rows of grapes.

The volume of the new complex integrating the existing cellar and pressing house reflects the characteristic scale of the surrounding buildings in a new interpretation.

The gate of the new building complex is marked by an emphatic line of trees crossing the access way of the hill.

The vestibule of the visitors’ centre, the wine shop and the open and sunny hall of wine tasting merge with the view deck and the vineyard which embraces the building contour.
