Gravity Flow Winery

South Downs, UK

The design concept utilises existing topography in the creation of a natural gravity flow winery production facility. The building is submerged into the contours of the hillside to reduce visual impact and maximise ground thermal coupling to create a cool and stable environment for maturing high quality wines.

The terracing of the winery into the site creates a gravity flow between the presses, tanks, barrels, etc. minimising energy use (pumps), while the gentler transfer of liquid is said to improve the finished wine.

The project provides the following:

A Gravity Flow Wine Production / Storage Facility

Tasting Rooms and Hospitality.

An integrated two bedroom apartment for a vineyard member of staff.

Hard standing for: Grape Receival / Pressing; Goods In / Dispatch; and car parking.
