Schreckbichl Winery

Cornaiano/Girlan, Eppan an der Weinstaße/Appiano sulla Strada del Vino, The South Tyrolean Wine Road
from center of

This cooperative winery was founded in 1960, and today its 290 members work more than 300 hectares of vineyards. The industrial buildings in which the winery was located on the outskirts of Cornaiano/Girlan, no longer matched the quality of the wines and its associated image. So the first step of remodeling the commercial building was to give it an attractive wood façade, with vertical oak floorboards and deep reveals with steel sheets for the necessary openings. A second construction phase implemented a visually light, steel structure as a roof for the delivery area, under which all-new winemaking equipment was installed. In addition, the tasting room was refurbished. Since the hillside winery is visible from afar, a steel trellis was placed on the street level of the buildings as an entryway, and the road was planted with cypresses to create an avenue.

Additional information

The task when redesigning existing buildings with several sections requires a constant overview, in order to bring the many parts into one whole. That was very successful here, with different functions built to meet the demands of modern wine technology.
