The establishment of a new winery by the Benedictine Monastery of Pannonhalma awakens a thousand years old tradition. The purpose of the group of buildings, which is located on a World Heritage property in the immediate vicinity of the Monastery, is not only to house the latest technology, but to rethink its relations to the environment as well and to give an architectural embodiment, both in exterior and interior spaces, to the mysterious stations whereby wine is born.
