Lopez de Heredia Winery
The latest starchitect to turn her hand to designing a winery in Rioja is Zaha Hadid. Her tasting room at López de Heredia envelopes an old hand-carved kiosk—used to display wares at the 1910 World’s Fair—in a gold-tinted steel. The cutting-edge design couldn’t be more different from the company’s wine-making methodology. “López de Heredia is an extremely traditional producer, to the point that the caves are filled with spiderwebs and mold,” says Food & Wine’s Ray Isle.
