Today, the winery has taken on a specific relevance with reference to the problem of collective space in the metropolis. Wine production goes back to antiquity. However, the winery is a relatively recent construction which has emerged as a conscious architectural product only in the last three hundred years. Having overcome the rich eclecticism of the Cha'¢teau, the villas and castles, the grandiosity of modernist ''wine cathedrals'' and the boxlike banality of the constructions inspired by the oenology manuals of the Seventies, the winery is experiencing today a new interesting season in post-industrial times. The winery does not just produce wine, but also hospitality, meetings, services, images, moments of socialisation, representation of a social and cultural status. The architectural project becomes therefore crucial in the definition of the collective space of the winery. This character marks the passage from the category of workspaces to that of collective spaces. The subject of wineries has been dealt with on two levels: that of the landscape, understood as the complex articulation between ''nature'' and residential, infrastructural, productive, and service artifices of which the winery and the vineyards are essential elements; and that of architecture, that is the field of formal and linguistic research within which is defined the strictly architectural identity of the winery itself.
