The modernist winery of Pinell de Brai

Àngel Guimerà defined it as one of the cathedrals of wine. Indeed, the admirable work of the modernist architect Cèsar Martinell, managed to create an interior atmosphere of light and spaciousness reminiscent of Gothic cathedrals. Genius, however, is manifested when effective functionality is added to this aesthetic excellence. Martinell incorporated important technical innovations, such as the structure of ships based on parabolic arches, the ventilation system through large windows or the isolation in chambers of the containers for winemaking. On the façade, simply for the taste for beauty, to do beautiful things, a glazed ceramic frieze was projected designed by the painter Francesc Xavier Nogués, where delicious scenes of the harvest and the elaboration of the wine and the oil follow one another.
