Architecture and Scenography

The Loisium is a combination of museum and brandland, historic wine cellars and the latest wine-making technologies. A wealth of attractions await the visitors, both underground and on the surface. We remodelled the former winerys into a lovingly presented museum about the vintners’ daily life. An atmospheric basilica is the climax of the walk through the celler labyrinth. In the entrance building, designed by Steven Holl, visitors can choose among an extensive selection of wine from the entire region.
