HOME / OUR BRANDS / VIK
Set within the vines, the VIK wine cellar can be seen from the Vik Chile retreat, where guests can admire its primary architectural element: its uniquely transparent, stretched-fabric roof.
In 2007 we held an architectural competition, inviting architects from around the world to submit their design ideas for our winery. The design is state-of-the-art, highly sustainable, technologically creative and a stunning visual experience.
The winery was designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic, a celebrated Pritzker Prize candidate. Set amongst the mountains and sweeping valleys with the soaring Andes mountains in the distance, the winery is thoughtfully designed to impact the landscape minimally. Its roof gives the impression of an enormous sleek white wing suspended over the underground structure. Traversing through the vines to arrive at the winery, guests discover a beautiful, calming, sloping plaza of running water streaming towards the building. The magnificent water mirror features an imaginative river rock sculptural installation which visitors enjoy as they move across walkways cut into the space, absorbing the picturesque surroundings.
