About Bodegas Baigorri
In Samaniego, near Laguardia, Basque architect Iñaki Aspiazu Iza used the natural slope of a hill to create one of the must impressive and unique wineries in the world. Standing on the viewing platform inside, looking down over this unique winery is an amazing experience.
The five stories are without partitions, creating a large open space where all the work is done by gravity. There is not a single pump in the winery. After selecting the grapes on a sorting table, they fall into special containers that deposit them in small, custom-made conic fermentation tanks. Stirring is also done by gravity. The winery uses only French oak.
