Deep in the heart of Kurdějov, a city in the Czech Republic with a long history of wine-making, is the impressive Gurdau Winery, home to endless rows of lush vineyard and a central wine house which beautifully connects an appreciation for wine, food and architecture in one irresistible space.
The wine house, while recessive in design, marks the peak of this impressive landscape, which the brand describes as “minimalist, elegant, but also original and respectful of nature. Just like our wines.”
While the landscape encompasses 17 acres of vineyard, the wine house is modest in comparison, and discreet in its design, formed out of an arch of reinforced concrete that supports an arching green roof, Czech architect Aleš Fiala told Interior Design.
“The Wine House itself is notable for its unique architecture,” the winery says. Following years of design development, the final idea was to blend the building into the surrounding landscape through elegant curves.”
“The placement of the winery directly among the vineyards is not a common occurrence in Moravia, allowing us to offer wine tastings in the very environment where the wine itself is created, all with humility and respect for the nature around.”
Inside, one level contains an area dedicated to Gurdau’s wine production, with a tasting room for vintage wines and two apartments for guests to avail of with overnight stays.
At ground floor, visitors can enjoy the bar, a dining room and soak in staggering views from the wine house’s terraces, blurring the lines between what a visit to this place can be – though certainly nothing less than impressive.
