Quinta do Monte d’Oiro has been known for its idyllic wine-making conditions since the 17th century, with a privileged terroir, resting on clay-limestone soils and the influence of Atlantic winds. This unique combination has created wines with a great freshness, elegance and balance for years.
For the Monte d’Oiro Wine Tasting Room competition, the family vineyard is looking to create a wine tasting room where people can gather around a table and enjoy both the magnificent wines and the magnificent views of the vineyard. Designs for the tasting room should be inviting and impressive, without seeming out of place on the family vineyard.

As the Quinta do Monte d’Oiro has expressed an interest in construction, winning designs will need to create a space that is unique to the vineyard - with the potential to become the property’s iconic landmark - while still remaining sensitive to the natural surroundings.
