Zýmē Winery

This beautiful winery located in the Valpolicella region in Italy takes its name from the Greek word for yeast: an indispensable element in oenology, but also a word linked to transformation and naturalness.

The architectural project by Arch. Moreno Zurlo coherently embodies the synthesis between man and nature. The winery is partially built inside a former sandstone quarry, while the rest  combines walls of naked stone and contemporary elements, such as the stunning stairway and the geometric design of the wine library.  Ramps and passages lit with red light (another reference to wine) guide the visitor through the open space. The colors, the subdued light, the texture of the stone along with the fascination of traditional wine-making, make these interiors magical.
