The d’Arenberg cube
The d’Arenberg motto of “the art of being different” certainly applies to their cellar door design. “The cube” is a five-storey glass building that houses the cellar door as well as several bars, restaurant, private tasting rooms and offices.
This ambitious project is the vision of d’Arenberg’s Chester Osborn, who says, “I’ve always considered winemaking to be a puzzle that needs to be put together, a complex combination of geographical elements. This building is yet another puzzle to solve, the external patterns join together for a seamless solution, and ideally, all elements of wine should do the same.”
So next time you’re in McLaren Vale, we highly recommend you check out the d'Arenberg Cube. Or if you can’t make it to the region, but you’re curious to check it out, you can view at www.darenberg.com.au/cube/
