Village Winery
Wine in Time

MAP was retained by the Tinnsen Corporation based in Taiyuan, Shanxi to design a winery as an anchor for its Taigu villa and hotel development, which lies just east of the famous Grace Vineyards.
Taigu Village Winery will produce 150,000 bottles of red wine. The fruit will come from Ningxia as well as Shanxi regions. Tinnsen Chairman, Mr. Du, was introduced to MAP through a French multinational vigneron for whom MAP has designed several wineries including one in Ningxia. The Shanxi visitor centre will also function as the clubhouse and sales pavilion for the development of a hotel, villas and specialist agricultural retail outlets surrounding the winery.

 The winery has been carefully designed with wine tours in mind. As a unique feature, visitors are kept safe and off the winery floor by the use of catwalks that enable the entire operation to be viewed from above.
A large industrial elevator then takes visitors down into the barrel room which has a wall of natural light flooding into the space.
Visitors return up a spiral, stainless steel staircase, which wraps around a fermentation tank, to the tasting room on L2 of the visitor centre.
The great lawn on the south side of the visitor centre provides a venue for weddings and receptions which can seat 300 people under a marquee.
The burgundy glass clad visitor centre and administration wing references the red wine production.

Construction will start in April 2016.
